Applications are invited for an AHRC CDA doctoral studentship offered by the Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership, to start in October 2023.

The studentship will be based in the Italian Section, Faculty of Modern and Medieval Language and Linguistics. The successful applicant will work on a collaborative project co-led by Professor Robert Gordon (rscg1@cam.ac.uk), University of Cambridge and Professor Abigail Brundin, co-supervisor, and Director of the British School at Rome.

The PhD student will carry out original research into aspects of the transnational cultural history of postwar Rome between liberation by the Allies in the summer of 1944 and the beginning of the 1950s. The specific focus of the research will be on the remarkable and complex transnational flows of individuals and groups, civilian and military, moving through Rome during this period. Rome was a site of crossing populations, migrations, returns, transitions and cultural convergence and divergence, as it has been throughout its history as a global city, but with particular variety and unpredictability in the chaos of the postwar moment. This was also a time of dramatic national transformation and renewal for Italy. The PhD will explore the ways in which transnational flows and national renewal shaped each other and how both informed the Europe-wide postwar settlement.

Further details of the project and its aims can be found on the Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC DTP website: https://www.oocdtp.ac.uk/postwar-rome.

Funding:

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. This CDA also provides dedicated funding to support a period of fieldwork research based at the British School at Rome. The fee gap between the home and overseas fee rates will be covered by the University through internal co-funding for international candidates.
