About the project

Street names communicate place-based legacies of power and civic identity. This project will examine colonial legacies of street names by exploring the interdisciplinary heritage context of street naming and examining responses to contested street names. It will develop a theoretical and methodological framework for the study of street names as cultural heritage, advance a strategy for communicating their heritage value and generate implementable objectives for policymakers.

The successful student will work with cultural heritage specialists at the University of Sheffield and Sheffield City Council (SCC). They will also join Roots and Futures - a place-based project which aims to elevate the voices of people underserved by heritage policy and practice in Sheffield.  The partnership will include an extended placement with the SCC Economy, Skills and Culture department, to explore ways of communicating street name legacy in Sheffield.

Full project details are available on the WRoCAH website.

Application deadline: 12 noon Wednesday 6 March 2024
