Midlands4Cities: AHRC funding for PhD study.
The AHRC-funded Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Partnership (M4C) brings together eight leading universities across the Midlands to support the professional and personal development of the next generation of arts and humanities doctoral researchers. M4C is a collaboration between the University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University, University of Warwick, Coventry University, University of Leicester, De Montfort University, Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham.
M4C is awarding up to 89 doctoral studentships for UK and International applicants for 2021 entry through an open competition and 21 Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDA) through a linked competition with a range of partner organisations in the cultural, creative and heritage sector.
The Centre for Cultural and Media Policy Studies invites applications from students whose research interests connect with our expertise in: Management and Creativity; Intellectual Property and the Creative Economy; Digital Media and Digital Memory; Cultural and Media Organisations; Global Media Industries and Policies; Creative Enterprise; Arts, Media and Sustainable Development; Cultural Policy; The Value of Culture; Cities, Spaces and National Identities; Structure and Agency in the Museums and Galleries Sector; Cultural Taste; Cultural Work; Transnational Screen Media; Media, Gender, Emotion and Ageing; Memory Studies, Archives and Popular Heritage; Media Policy and the Environment; Pedagogy, Creativity and Storytelling.
This year the Centre will also host a CDA application, in partnership with the Royal Society of Sculptors. David Wright and Dr.Emma Parker from Leicester will be working with the RSS to supervise the project on 'Contested Heritage: Memorialising a diverse society', researching the statuary of the Midlands. Questions about this, or about any other M4C applications to the Centre, can be addressed to David on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for M4C funding applications is 13 January 2021 (noon), by which time applicants must have applied for a place to study and have ensured that two academic references are submitted using the Midlands4Cities online reference form.
