Metallic Empire: Science, Energy, and Industrial Imperialism in the John Percy Collection, 1817–89
Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD studentship (fees and maintenance) to be held at the Department of History, University of Warwick and the Science Museum, London. The studentship focuses on the colonial and industrial history of the John Percy Collection, held at the Science Museum, London. The Percy Collection comprises over 3,700 mineralogical specimens, including coal from South Africa, silver from Australia, and copper from India. The collection was made by John Percy FRS (1817–1889), and then subsequently acquired by the South Kensington Museum on his death.
The call for applications for the EUI funded PhD programme is opening on 1 November 2021. The EUI Department of History and Civilisation offers exceptional opportunities to study global connections from early modern to modern European history, in the magical city and setting of Florence.
