Studentship: Scotland and Slavery: Evidence from the Collections of Glasgow Museums
May 22, 2015
The University of Glasgow’s School of Humanities, in partnership with Glasgow Museums (Glasgow Life), are please to announce a three-year PhD studentship under the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Collaborative Doctoral Partnership scheme (CDP), to begin 1 October 2015. This project will explore how the little-known and little-studied history of Glasgow’s and Scotland’s connections with plantation slavery in the Caribbean and North American colonies are reflected in artefacts in the collections of Glasgow Museums. The award covers home EU tuition fees and provides a maintenance award of at least £1,200 per month, and some research and training expenses for three years, and will benefit from staff training alongside permanent museum staff members. Applications for the studentships are due no later than Friday 22nd May. Interviews will be held on Friday 5th June in Glasgow. For further information, and for details on the application process, please see http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/humanities/latestnews/headline_401526_en.html
