De Montfort University PhD Scholarship History of Photography Photographic History Research Centre

School of Humanities, Faculty of Art, Design and Humanities De Montfort University, Leicester

COMMENCING OCTOBER 2015

A PhD research scholarship including stipend and tuition fee costs is offered within the Photographic History Research Centre in the School of Humanities. It is available to UK or EU students who are suitably qualified and have outstanding potential as a researcher.

Applications are invited for projects that address any aspect of photographic industry and business in the nineteenth and/or twentieth centuries, a field which has received limited attention in history of photography. Projects might examine, for instance, the practices of a specific studio or business, labour in the photographic industry, a specific community or location, marketing methods, commercially orientated photographic practices, or aspects of industrial research and development. The project will contribute to PHRC’s world-leading research focus on the methods for expanded histories of photography and the social, cultural and economic practices of photography.

We seek applicants with a strong academic background in subjects such as history, art history, science and technology studies, business history or visual culture studies.

For a more detailed description of the scholarship and the subject area at DMU please visit http://www.dmu.ac.uk/research/graduate-school/phd-scholarships.aspx or contact Professor Elizabeth Edwards on email eedwards@dmu.ac.uk

In offering this scholarship the University aims to further develop its proven research strengths in Photographic History. It is an excellent opportunity for a candidate of exceptional promise to contribute to a stimulating, world-class research environment.

Applications are invited from UK or EU students with a Master’s degree or good first degree (First, 2:1 or equivalent) in a relevant subject. Doctoral scholarships are available for up to three years full-time study starting October 2015 and provide a bursary of ca. £14,057 pa in addition to University tuition fees.

To receive an application pack, please contact Morgan Erdlenbruch via email at Morgan.Erdlenbruch@dmu.ac.uk. Completed applications should be returned together with two supporting references.
