About the Programme

The Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories (CMNH) exists to develop, focus and stimulate research concerned with the cultural significance of the past for our lived experience, social relationships, politics and identities in the present.

Emphasising the plural 'histories', the Centre's work explores the relations between powerful or official narratives about the past and those which give expression to subordinate, marginalised and neglected historical experience.

We welcome research student applications in any of the following research areas:

  • Archives and histories
  • Community history
  • Cultural memory
  • Cultural, social and political history
  • Oral history and life history
  • Popular history making
  • Public history and heritage
  • Testimony, life writing and narrative.

For more information about our research centre, visit the Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories website.

To discuss opportunities with our Centre Director, email Professor Graham Dawson: G.Dawson@brighton.ac.uk
