Profile Description

Cultural Heritage MA by Research/PhD/PhD by Distance Learning

The Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage is based at the University of Birmingham. The Institute's links with the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust - one of the UK's first World Heritage sites - along with numerous global heritage partners, will provide you with a unique academic experience.

The MA by Research programme requires you to prepare a dissertation of up to 40,000 words on a topic of your choice, for which an academic staff member will provide expert supervision.

The PhD – the most advanced research degree – leads to a dissertation of up to 80,000 words on a subject of your choice and under the expert supervision of our academic staff. You can study for a PhD on campus or by Distance Learning .

PhD researchers are normally supervised by teams of two academic staff attached to the Institute but we are able to call upon a wide-range of University staff expertise and external advisors in order to provide the best possible support.

Our research themes, in which we are able to offer expertise, are not intended to be rigid as we recognise the wide spectrum of interpretations of cultural heritage, its cross-disciplinary nature and its international relevance. We welcome ideas for PhD which are innovative, challenging and which push at the boundaries of the many dimensions of cultural heritage. We will work with you to ensure that your research topic is ‘do-able' and will provide maximum interest and impact for you, in line with your future career aspirations.

Research interests of staff include:

World Heritage
Understanding Intangible Cultural Heritage
Valuing Heritage
Tourism and Cultural Change
Heritages of Conflict
Industrial Heritage Futures
Imagined and Mediated Pasts
Histories of Heritage
Heritage Policy
Trans-Atlantic Dialogues in Cultural Heritage
