The University of Hull (U.K.) is currently advertising 5 interdisciplinary fully funded (4 year) PhD opportunities in the new Leverhulme Doctoral Scholarships Centre for Water Cultures based at the University of Hull.
The Centre for Water Cultures pioneers a new humanities-led, interdisciplinary and transhistorical research area, the ‘green blue humanities.’ It will explore humanity’s relationships with water in the critical green-blue regions of the world, past, present and future. Human-induced climate change is increasing both the likelihood and severity of floods and droughts, and coastal and estuarine communities must learn to live with water and build resilience. We must learn from the past, from multiple disciplines and from Western, non-Western, and Indigenous water cultures worldwide. Doing so will foster new understandings of how humanity’s relationships with the environment need to change in order to sustain the cities, communities, and cultures of these risky regions for the generations of tomorrow.
For the 2022 entry, we’re advertising 5 interdisciplinary PhD projects, drawing on a range of disciplinary approaches from Geography to History, Visual Arts to English, Drama to Marine Science. There’s plenty to appeal to geography and history graduates, so please do encourage good Masters students and recent graduates to apply (a Masters is desirable for not essential). The deadline for applications is January 10, 2021.
For more info on the CDT and this year’s PhD opportunities, see the Centre’s website. For more info on the new Centre, please visit this page. Those looking for more information or with questions about the application should contact Briony McDonagh, Director of the Leverhulme Doctoral Scholarships Centre for Water Cultures at B.McDonagh@hull.ac.uk.
