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 Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museums Wales (AC-NMW).
This PhD project aims to consider the ways in which the Welsh past has been represented in Wales’s national museums, and what that reveals about Welsh identity in the period under review.
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.
Amgueddfa Cymru’s Vision - ‘Inspiring People, Changing Lives’ – aims to ‘inspire people through their museums and collections to find a sense of well-being and identity, to discover, enjoy and learn bilingually, and to understand Wales' place in the wider world’.
