As part of the newly established Wheeler History of Travel Writing Programme, the Department of History at the University of Warwick is inviting applications for up to two Ph.D. studentships, starting in October 2024, in the History of Travel and Travel Writing. The remaining Ph.D. studentships will be available from 2025 onwards.
The programme seeks to attract talented researchers whose projects may focus on any period or region of the world. Candidates who adopt a global historical perspective and have the ability to work with sources in more than one language are particularly encouraged to apply.
Eligibility: Candidates can be of any nationality and must apply for a History Ph.D. at the University of Warwick to begin in Autumn 2024.
Successful applicants will benefit from the wide-ranging expertise represented by Warwick’s Department of History and its Global History and Culture Centre as well as the range of training and development opportunities offered by the Department and Doctoral College. Candidates are encouraged to explain how their proposal fits within the department’s existing research profile.
