Applications are invited for an AHRC CDA doctoral studentship offered by the Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership, to start in the October of the 2023-24 academic year.
The studentship will be based in the Faculty of History. The successful applicant will work on a collaborative project co-led by Dr Gareth Atkins (firstname.lastname@example.org), Faculty of History, and Dr Barbara Wood, Cultural Heritage Curator National Trust, South West Region.
The studentship will investigate the Acland family of Killerton House in Devon. Research questions that the project might explore include the nature of a landed family's involvement in antislavery or empire, from money and speeches to ephemera and music; the relationships generated by shared education, religion, politics and imperial employment; the emotional, professional or business interests that tied individuals together across time and space; the echoes of empire on a landed estate, its archives and artefacts.
Further details of the project and its aims can be found on the Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC DTP website: https://www.oocdtp.ac.uk/aclands-killerton-remaking-imperial-britain-long-nineteenth-century
The DTP studentships will provide an annual maintenance grant to cover living costs (£17,668 stipend + £550 CDA allowance pa at current rates) and university tuition fees at home fee level. The fee gap between the home and overseas fee rates will be covered by the University through internal co-funding for international candidates.
