The Mental World of a Country House

The Library of the 3rd Earl of Carlisle and the Building of Castle Howard

This Collaborative Doctoral Award (supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council) is an exciting opportunity to pursue a fully funded PhD on one of Europe's grandest country houses in one of Britain's leading universities. It will provide extensive access to the archives at Castle Howard, regular contact with its curator and other experts in the Yorkshire Country House Partnership, and full participation in the research culture of the University of York's Department of English & Related Literature and Centre for Renaissance & Early Modern Studies. The successful applicant will come away from the award with original research that sheds new light on this important old house along with training in the skills needed to move between universities, libraries and the heritage sector.
