Colonial/ Postcolonial History Studentship

University of Bristol - Arts / Department of History / Humanities

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: Bristol, Sydney - Australia
Funding for: UK Students
Funding amount: From £16,062 per annum rising in alignment with UKRI terms and conditions.
Hours: Full Time
Placed On: 22nd June 2022
Closes: 1st August 2022

The project:

The award is open to students embarking on PhD research starting in October 2022 in any aspect of British and Australian colonial and postcolonial history. We are looking for applicants interested in pursuing original research to be supervised by Professor Hilary Carey (University of Bristol) and Associate Professor Tanya Evans (Macquarie University) who are leading historians of colonialism and its legacies in the British world. 

The studentship is funded through the Bristol-Macquarie Cotutelle Programme which offers postgraduate researchers access to state of the art facilities at two universities.  The programme encourages and facilitates comparative studies based in the UK and Australia. Possible doctoral projects could include, but will not be restricted to: memory and commemoration, public histories of colonialism, heritage and the built environment in colonial cities, religious and cultural colonialism in settler societies, legacies of colonialism in old and new worlds, diasporic identities in old and new societies. The research contexts for this work could include (but are not be restricted to) modern Australian and British (including Irish) history, colonial history, or global history. It is expected that the project would require experience working in archives.

The project will take place over four years and involve complementary research in colonial and postcolonial sites in the UK and Australia. As a condition of funding, the successful applicant will study for the first two years on location at the University of Bristol. The final two years will be spent on location at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia.

Alongside their research, the student will help with aspects of public engagement coordinated by the supervisors.
