AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Partnership (CDP) PhD Studentship

Short-lived Newspaper: Reassessing Success and Failure in the 19th Century Press

(Reference: 001/AHRC/OCT21)

Edge Hill University and the British Library are pleased to announce the availability of a fully funded Collaborative Doctoral Studentship from 1 October 2021 under the AHRC’s Collaborative Doctoral Partnership Scheme.

All research students are registered in the University’s Graduate School and housed in the faculty or department that is most appropriate for the project on which they are working. The successful candidate in this case will be housed in the English, History and Creative Writing department.

The project will explore the British Library’s recently digitised corpus of ‘short-lived’ newspapers and explore what might be termed the ‘lifecycle’ of the nineteenth-century press.

This project will be jointly supervised by Dr Bob Nicholson and Dr Andrew McInnes at Edge Hill University and by Dr Luke McKernan and Dr Elizabeth Gaskell at the British Library. The student will spend time with both Edge Hill University and the British Library and will become part of the wider cohort of AHRC CDP funded PhD students across the UK.

Edge Hill University and the British Library are keen to encourage applications from a wide range of students and particularly welcome those currently underrepresented in doctoral student cohorts.
