        Subject: Studentships in Digital Arts and Humanities at University College Cork

University College Cork invites applications for studentships within the
structured PhD programme in Digital Arts and Humanities (DAH). Successful
candidates will be registered with the full-time inter-disciplinary
structured PhD programme co-ordinated with an all-Irish university
consortium. Candidates will pursue their individual research agendas within
the program, related to specific project areas, for which they will develop
proposals which they provide during the application process.

Subject areas:

Currently fellowships are available in History, English and Music.
Seehttp://www.ucc.ie/en/cacsss/grads/grep/dah/ for specifics.

What is DAH?

The ever-evolving developments in computing and their performative and
analytical implications have brought about a quantum leap in arts and
humanities research and practice. Digital Arts and Humanities is a field of
study, research, teaching, and invention at the intersection of computing
and information management with the arts and humanities.

The DAH Structured PhD programme will create the research platform, the
structures, partnerships and innovation models by which fourth-level
researchers can engage with a wide range of stakeholders in order to
contribute to the developing digital arts and humanities community
world-wide, as participants and as leaders.

Programme Structure

Candidates will complete core, training and career development modules,
including main modules shared across the consortium and others
institutionally-based. The overall aim of the taught modules are threefold:
1) to introduce students to the history and theoretical issues in digital
arts/humanities; 2) to provide the skills needed to apply advanced
computational and information management paradigms to humanities/arts
research; 3) to provide an enabling framework for students to develop
generic and transferable skills to carry out their final research

Year 1 of the four-year programme includes core and optional graduate
education modules delivered in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Maynooth. These
modules provide a grounding in essential research skills and transferable
skills together with access to specialist topics. In years 2 and 3 work on
PhD research projects is supplemented with access to elective modules. Year
3 features practical placements in industry, academic research environments
or cultural institutions.

University College Cork has a strong track record in Digital Humanities and
has been a pioneer in the development of digital tools for language study
and historiography. The College of Arts (CACSSS) has particular strengths in
European and Irish history, Renaissance Studies, English language and
literature, Music and musicology, among others.
