Three MPhil/PhD studentships in English

University of Southampton, School of Humanities, English

Applications are invited for three studentships in the Discipline of English, School of Humanities, in the following areas:

Eighteenth/Nineteenth Centuries
Twentieth Century

English at Southampton is an expanding and dynamic discipline area with a thriving research culture and an excellent record of research funding and we are looking for students who wish to undertake research projects, which fit in with existing large projects or with individual staff interests.

Each of the three studentships will be supported by a research centre: Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Culture; Chawton House Library; and Centre for Contemporary Writing (

These centres provide interdisciplinary networks within and beyond the University of Southampton and promote regular seminars, colloquia and workshops. Library facilities are well-resourced and we offer excellent training in research skills.

Current large AHRC-funded research projects include ‘The Indian Ocean: narratives in literature and law’; ‘Records of Early English Drama, Middlesex/Westminster: Eight Theatres North of the Thames’; ‘Writing in Tongues: Multi-languages, cultural bodies and the creation of a multi-genre poetry' (

Each studentship is for £2000 per annum for three years. Applicants should have a good first degree; a Masters degree is desirable. Applications should be made on the form available at

and should be sent with a covering letter, explaining how the proposed research project fits with existing research projects in the discipline. Advice will be given on applications to AHRC.

For further information, please contact Professor Ros King

Applications should ideally be received by 11 February, 2008, but if you think you are unable to meet this deadline, please contact us to discuss your application.
