About the Project
Two Masters by Research studentships are available to study at the University of York. They are part of the Rising from the Depths AHRC Network, which promotes the marine cultural heritage of eastern Africa. They are both based in the Department of Archaeology, on the theme of heritage broadly construed, but are interdisciplinary in their approach.
A Masters by Research is an independent research degree, completed over a 12-month period. The projects suggested for study are outlined here, but there is a lot of scope for interpretation by the successful candidate; ultimately it should become your own project.
This project will critically assess the potential for digital resources to promote inclusive practice at heritage sites on the east African coast. It will be focused on Kilwa region, southern Tanzania, drawing on previous research on community heritage involvement here. The project will assess existing digital infrastructure and work with partners in the region to identify appropriate digital resources for presenting the rich heritage of Kilwa in an inclusive way. The results will inform ongoing work in the region, with the potential for the development of digital resources that can be implemented locally.
Qualifications: BA/BSc in a relevant discipline (archaeology, heritage, digital humanities)
