Cultural Heritage Sites, Collections, or Museums in Anthropological Perspective


   School of Archaeology

   Applications accepted all year round  Self-Funded PhD Students Only

About the Project

I am interested in supporting applications to undertake doctoral research that focuses on a specific cultural heritage site, collection, museum, or other heritage institution, using the methods and theories of the growing sub-discipline of the anthropology of heritage. Regional specialisation is open to any part of the world, although proposals that connect with existing regional interests in the School may be prioritised. The primary research method will be ethnographic research, so language proficiency may be an important consideration. The student will work closely with both Archaeology and Geography & Environmental Science staff within SAGES. Informal enquiries may be directed to Dr Alanna Cant;

Eligibility: Masters-level qualification (merit or distinction) or BA or BSc degree (1st or 2.1 classification) in Social Anthropology; Human Geography; Heritage Studies; or other relevant degree.
