The award is open to students embarking on PhD research starting in September 2023 in any aspect of the History of Hong Kong. We are looking for applicants interested in pursuing original research to be supervised by members of the Hong Kong History Centre and associated staff in the Department of History (including but not limited to Professor Robert Bickers, Dr. Vivian Kong, and Professor Ray Yep), and who also share a vision for public engagement of the discipline.
The studentship is funded by a generous donation from the Hatton Trust, as part of the Hong Kong History Centre established at the University of Bristol (http://www.hkhistory.net/). Building on the work of Hong Kong History Project, the new Centre encourages and facilitates the study of the history of Hong Kong in the UK, and collaborates with partners in Hong Kong and internationally. Possible doctoral projects could focus on any sub-discipline of history, with a focus on Hong Kong, that could be provided with expert supervision from Hong Kong History Centre staff or other members of the Department of History. It is expected that the project would require Chinese language skills.
Alongside their research, the student will help with aspects of public engagement coordinated by members of the Centre.
