Place, Death and Inequalities

About this project

Applications are invited for undertaking research for a PhD research project entitled ‘Place, Death and Inequalities’. This project seeks to map the uneven geographical inequalities of deaths, bereavement and new topographies of deathscapes that emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic with particular attention to intersectionality.

The lead PhD project supervisor will be Dr Elsbeth Robson, Reader in Human Geography in the Department of Geography, Geology and Environment at the University of Hull.

Within the scope of this project the successful applicant will address the following research questions:

  • How can uneven spatial distributions of COVID-19 deaths during the pandemic (by country, region, urban/rural etc) be explained?
  • Do the unequal social dimensions of COVID-19 deaths (by gender, ethnicity, age etc) reflect new or existing socio-economic cleavages?
  • How does intersectionality help illuminate hotspots of death, grief and bereavement?
  • In what ways can geographical insights into the nuanced time-space topographies of COVID-19 deathscapes be used to mitigate loss in this and future pandemics?

 

The successful candidate will be a member of the Department of Geography, Geology and Environment in which the ‘Living with Death – Learning from COVID’ cluster will be based at the University of Hull.

For informal enquiries, please contact Dr Elsbeth Robson, E.Robson@hull.ac.uk or Prof Andy Jonas, A.E.jonas@hull.ac.uk  

About the ‘Living with Death – Learning from COVID’ research cluster

This multi-disciplinary research cluster programme with five PhD projects will investigate, identify, understand and suggest mitigations for the unintended medium-longer term consequences of socially distanced death. In collaborating across social sciences, health and humanities the cluster will engage with and evaluate approaches (e.g. funeral practices, story telling) to alleviating the intense suffering, grief and bereavement of COVID-19.

The ‘Living with Death – Learning from COVID’ research cluster is led by PI Dr Elsbeth Robson, Reader in Human Geography (e.robson@hull.ac.uk).

Funding

The successful applicant will receive a fee waiver and a maintenance grant / stipend for three years (full-time) or five years (part-time), which covers the research period of the PhD. The fee waiver for 21/22 is £4500 (Home fee) and the maintenance grant is £15609. This rises each year in line with the UKRI’s recommended stipend allowance.

Submission of thesis

Submission of your final thesis is expected within three years and three months from the start of your PhD scholarship for full time and within five years and six months if studying part-time.

If you need to move into a fourth year (full time) or sixth year (part-time) to complete your thesis, please note that you will not receive a tuition fee waiver or maintenance grant during this period.
