The University of Stirling is now taking applications for funded PhD studentships in History, Politics, Heritage and Archaeology through the Scottish AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership. Since the University’s foundation, it has produced internationally excellent and world-leading research. The Division of History and Politics is at the cutting edge of interdisciplinary research characterised by a number of distinctive themes.
We welcome enquiries from students wishing to undertake research relating to any of our specialisms, but we especially encourage applications in the following fields:
- Environmental history
- Heritage studies and archaeology
- Political activism and social movements from the eighteenth century to the present
- Scottish history in a European context
- American and Atlantic Studies
- African history
- Spanish and Portuguese history
We also welcome students who wish to combine our areas of expertise with those in other disciplines. We are the home to two leading research centres: The Centre for Environment, Heritage and Policy (https://www.stir.ac.uk/cehp/) and the Centre for Policy, Conflict and Co-Operation Research (https://www.stir.ac.uk/arts-humanities/research/centres/cpccr/). These provide an important framework for many of our PhD students, pooling the expertise of academic staff in History and Politics together with those in Law, Social Sciences, and Biological and Environmental Sciences.
The AHRC DTP Scotland comprises eight higher education institutions working together with a prestigious range of local, regional & national arts, culture, heritage & other organisations to deliver world-class doctoral training in the arts & humanities.
