Applicants are invited for a PhD studentship on the ‘afterlife’ of HMS Victory. The proposed project is based at the University of Southampton. It is about how Victory became a national icon and about the links between heritage and national mythologies. It would be suited to someone interested in social and cultural history with a focus on the nineteenth or the twentieth centuries.
Our overall aim is to be an open, yet quality medium for furthering substantive inquiry within the rich field of maritime affairs among a growing number of scholars.
