University of Leeds 110 Anniversary Research Scholarships

As part of the 110 Anniversary Scholarships, the School of History and Institute for Medieval Studies is offering up to 5 fully funded doctoral scholarships. Deadline: 18th February 2015

Theme: Constructing the Past, Constructing the Future

As part of the 110 Anniversary Scholarships, the School of History and Institute for Medieval Studies is offering up to 5 fully funded doctoral scholarships to form a student cohort exploring how history and historians construct narratives of the past with a mind on the future.

Arguably all history is concerned with this endeavour but increasingly both historical scholarship and the heritage industry have become more self-conscious in addressing the constructed nature of historical inquiry. Research into the methodologies, ethics and political imperatives of the multiple agents and makers of history has shown how historical narratives both reflect and shape contemporary concerns.

More information and eligibility requirements can be found here or on the University website.

Deadline for applications: Wednesday 18th February 2015 (23:59 UK time)
