Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership Collaborative Doctoral Award: France and the Second World War: The Cambridge Chadwyck-Healey Liberation Collection (1944-1946)

Project Description

The Open University has available an AHRC funded PhD studentship through the Open-Oxford-Cambridge DTP consortium to start 2020/1. It is a collaborative award with the Cambridge University Library on ‘France and the Second World War: The Cambridge Chadwyck-Healey Liberation Collection (1944-1946).’

This PhD project aims to make use of the Cambridge University Library Chadwyck-Healey Liberation Collection to explore particular aspects of France during the Second World War, the Liberation, and/or in the immediate post-war period (1939-1946). Any topic pertaining to France during the period 1940-46 will be considered, provided it makes use of the Liberation Collection.

The Open University is internationally recognized for innovative research across the Arts and Humanities. We host a number of major AHRC- and ESRC-funded research projects. We have a strong commitment to cross-disciplinary work, to national and international public engagement, and to creative partnerships with a range of non-university partners.

The Cambridge University Library is the main research library of the University of Cambridge, with approximately eight million items in its collection. This includes the Chadwyck-Healey Liberation Collection, the definitive collection of French books published following the German retreat from French soil on 25 August 1944, donated by Sir Charles Chadwyck-Healey. The Library will bring considerable experience to the research and supervision of this doctoral studentship.
