About the Programme
The Humanities Research Centre supports research in English, History, and Film and Performance Studies.
Our History research specialises in the period from the late eighteenth century to the present.
We invite applications for research study in any of our research strengths:
• imperial and global history
• economic and business history
• women's and gender history
• European history
• popular culture and politics in Britain.
Humanities Research Centre
The Humanities Research Centre conducts research in English, History, and Film and Performance Studies. Alongside the research specialisms within these disciplines, we collaborate across the Centre on areas of shared interest including cultural history, gender, imperialism, scriptwriting and adaptation. In the 2014 REF, 67% of the work submitted in History was rated as being at least internationally excellent.
You will be part of our community of researchers in the Humanities, with the opportunity to attend and contribute to a range of discipline, faculty and University-wide seminars, workshops, training and conferences. We offer formal research training events and academic seminars as well as more informal workshops where you can practise delivering conference papers in a supportive environment. We will encourage you to attend conferences, deliver papers and publish your work.
We are also part of the North of England Consortium for Arts and Humanities and the Heritage Consortium.
The Department of Humanities welcomes applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship.
Vice Chancellor bursaries are for three years, subject to satisfactory progress.
They include tuition fees at home/EU rates and a stipend of £15,009 per annum. Currently enrolled PhD students, or those who already have a PhD are not eligible to apply.
The start date for the studentship is 1 May 2020.
