Applications invited for ESRC CASE joint (1+3) MA and Doctoral award

Published on

Applications are invited for a four-year, fully-funded ESRC CASE joint (1+3) MA and Doctoral Award to be held at Lancaster University (for the MA) and the University of Liverpool (for the PhD), in conjunction with National Museums Liverpool, beginning in October 2021.

This project is a collaboration between the University of Liverpool, Lancaster University, Liverpool John Moores University, and National Museums Liverpool (NML).

It aims to generate new understandings of the nature and legacies of imperial and colonial violence through a deep interdisciplinary approach.

This approach will embrace the use of digital humanities technologies in the curation of collections.

The focus will be on understanding how imperial and colonial violence has been conceptualised and perpetuated through imperial and colonial collecting, curatorial decision-making and museum display practices.
