PhD studentship opportunity

Réa de Matas Discussion

University College London (UCL) and The National Archives are pleased to announce the availability of a fully-funded Collaborative Doctoral Studentship from October 2022, under the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Collaborative Doctoral Partnership Scheme.

The studentship, entitled ‘E-Government for all?: The role of technology relating to the processes and mediation of diverse citizen-state interaction’, is open for applications until 13 May 2022 at 17:00.

This studentship seeks to investigate a central question: how did infrastructural and technological changes at the turn of the 20th century enact new forms of government and how were these new forms experienced by citizens?

It will be jointly supervised by Professor Jon Agar (UCL) and Dr Jenny Bunn (The National Archives), and secondary supervisors Dr Elizabeth Lomas (UCL) and Balint Csollei (The National Archives). The studentship can be studied either full- or part-time. It is important to us that our organisations are more diverse, so we encourage applications from people of all backgrounds and identities. We are especially keen to hear from candidates from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds as they are currently underrepresented at this level in this area.
