1968 at 50 (French and/or European collective memory of 1968)

Supervisor: Dr Reynolds

This project will explore questions related to the theme of the French and/or European collective memory of 1968. The forthcoming 50th anniversary of this tumultuous year of revolt and rebellion will inevitably trigger a renewed focus on this pivotal period. As a result, 2018 presents a particularly pertinent optic through which the evolving collective memory of this period can be assessed and examined. The successful candidate will also be expected to draw connections to broader questions related to national/transnational memory studies, the role role/ importance of commemorations, as well as debates on issues of national and European identity.

Deadline: 31st March 2017

Emotional Heritage and Interpretation: The Workhouse in Britain

Supervisor: Dr Grewcock

There is a growing interest among academics and practitioners in the potential of museums and heritage sites to engage audiences through emotion and affect in addition to more conventional, informational modes of interpretation. This PhD will explore the possibilities of interpreting the heritage of welfare in the UK - and specifically the workhouse - through a site-specific collaboration with Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse in Norfolk. The PhD candidate would have access to Gressenhall's staff, site and collections, and would critically interrogate the potential of affective approaches to the interpretation of Gressenhall's 'emotional heritage'. Candidates may have a background in a range of disciplines, including history, museum and heritage studies, art and design.

Specific qualifications/subject areas required of the applicants for this project
(e.g. 2:1 BSc Hons. Chemistry): UK 1st Class/2:1 (or UK equivalent according to Naric) Bachelor's degree in, for example History, MA in History, MA Museum & Heritage Studies, or postgraduate qualification in art and design.

Deadline: 31st March 2017
