Call for PhD Applications: Mobilising Dutch East India Company Collections for New Global Stories

Killian Quigley Discussion

Dear colleagues,


I write from the Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences at the Australian Catholic University (ACU) to share a call for PhD applications in connection with Mobilising Dutch East India Company Collections for New Global Stories, an Australian Research Council Linkage Project. A range of specialisms--including critical ocean studies and the environmental humanities--are welcomed under the disciplinary umbrellas of history and literary studies. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions.


With best wishes,


Killian Quigley
