AHRC funding for UK/EU arts and humanities research students
The Midlands3Cities Doctoral Training Partnership will be awarding 410 PhD studentships over a five year period to excellent research students in the arts and humanities. The DTP, a collaboration between De Montfort University and the universities of Nottingham, Nottingham Trent, Leicester, Birmingham and Birmingham City, provides research candidates with cross-institutional mentoring, expert supervision including cross-institutional supervision where appropriate, subject-specific and generic training, and professional support in preparing for a career.
The Centre for Adaptation Studies at De Montfort University is inviting applications from students whose research interests include:
· Screen adaptations of canonical or popular authors
· Adaptation franchises
· Modernism and adaptation
· Adaptations in the silent period, the 1930s, the war years, post-war, late 20th or early 21st centuries
· Film and television adaptation
The deadline for AHRC funding applications is the 9th of January 2014, by which time students must have applied for a place to study and have provided two references to a university within the DTP.
