About the Project

The Open University has available an AHRC funded PhD studentship through the Open-Oxford-Cambridge DTP consortium to start 2022/2023. It is a collaboration award with the University of Edinburgh Library.

This PhD project will encourage a decentralized approach to the late Scottish Enlightenment, emphasising its many cultural and intellectual links with France, Switzerland, Germany, America and the Caribbean amongst others, as well as the global reach of Scottish ideas beyond Britain. It will do so by focusing on intellectual and social international networks at the University of Edinburgh, by then the leading centre of Scottish Enlightenment thought.

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.

All UKRI-funded doctoral students will be eligible for a full award. This covers all tuition fees and provides a maintenance grant at the standard RCUK rate for CDAs (which was £16,159 p.a. in 2020/21). Applicants should consider the AHRC's eligibility requirements before making an application and contact the university if in doubt.

How to apply

Closing date: 11th January 2022 - 12:00pm (midday)

Widening Participation
