        Subject: Two PhD Studentships at King’s College London (Language Acts and Worldmaking )

Dear colleagues

We are delighted to announce the call for applications below for the following studentships relating to the Language Acts and Worldmaking project, which include the possibility for proposals relating to the interactions (and tensions) between modern languages research and digital culture. Applications can relate to any of the named project strands, but this would suit, for example, modern language students with an interest in the potential role of the digital humanities, digital methods, data, or digital culture more generally in mediating new research landscapes.

The research strand I lead, which this relates to, is described here: https://languageacts.org/digital-mediations/




The AHRC-funded Language Acts and Worldmaking research project (one of the four projects in the Open World Research Initiative [OWRI] programme) seeks applicants for two PhD Studentships at King’s College London. For each of the PhD positions available, we are looking for imaginative and innovative proposals that relate to one or more of the three research strands based at King’s College London. The two studentships offered will work alongside Professor Julian Weiss and Mr AbdoolKarim Vakil, leads for the Travelling Concepts<https://languageacts.org/travelling-concepts/> strand; or Professor Catherine Boyle, lead for the Translation Acts<https://languageacts.org/translation-acts/> strand; or Paul Spence, lead for the Digital Mediations<https://languageacts.org/digital-mediations/> strand. These students will be registered in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at King’s College London.

The deadline for applications is Monday 10th July.
