AHRC Studentship for Doctoral Researchers in the Arts and Humanities

Schools of empire: Class, race, and colonialism, c. 1750-1945

The Open University has available an AHRC funded PhD studentship through the Open-Oxford-Cambridge DTP consortium to start 2023/2024. It is a collaboration award with Rugby School.

This research project will use Rugby School as an institutional lens through which to explore histories of class, colonialism, gender, and race alongside their legacies at British public schools.

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.

Available from October 2023, this fully-funded studentship includes: payment of university fees throughout the funded period; a tax-free maintenance grant for your living costs at the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) minimum rate (£17,668 for 2022/23); an additional AHRC stipend of £550 per annum to support costs incurred by working with the partner organisation. Further details about the benefits of an Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC DTP award are available on the DTP’s studentships page.

In taking an archetypal public-school setting as its focal point, this project promises to broach new ground, examining the modes of colonial thinking and behaviour inculcated among students and staff, many of them destined for careers in the political, economic, and military machinery of empire. It provides an opportunity for the applicant to make a significant contribution to the history of education and empire as well as contemporary debates.
