One full-time, three year PhD studentship available from 1 January 2011
Interdisciplinary PhD Studentship in Digital Humanities
Open University - Faculty of Arts
Based in Milton Keynes

Digital Humanities at The Open University is a rapidly growing area of 
research. The proposed studentship is aimed at exploring the application 
of geographical concepts to research in the Arts and Humanities, and the 
ways in which they are represented, in the digital medium. We would 
welcome applications from candidates with an appropriate research 
proposal in any discipline studied in The Open University Faculty of 
Arts, ie Art History, Classical Studies, English, History, Music, 
Philosophy and Religious Studies.

Projects which will benefit from supervision across traditional 
disciplinary boundaries are particularly encouraged. Also encouraged are 
proposals with links to one of our existing research groups or 
collaborative projects.
