The Queen’s House at Greenwich: the material cultures of the courts of Anna of Denmark and Henrietta Maria (1603-1669)

The School of Arts at Roehampton University is pleased to offer two 3 year AHRC-funded doctoral studentships to outstanding candidates in Early Modern and Renaissance studies.

In collaboration with the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, we invite applications for doctoral research to contextualise the Queen’s House at Greenwich within the court cultures of the Stuart queens. This project would suit well-qualified students (typically with a BA and an MA completed or near completion) in literature, art history, history, drama, theatre studies or a related subject. Enthusiasm for interdisciplinary, archival, visual and / or theatrical research is essential, and experience with such work, as well as an interest in early modern gender and culture may be advantageous. The successful candidate will have an exceptional level of access to the Queen’s House in the Greenwich UNESCO World Heritage Site and will benefit from the resources, experience and support provided by staff at Roehampton. The project may include opportunities to contribute to a conference and exhibition, and will provide outstanding opportunities for those seeking an academic or curatorial career.

The project will be supervised by Dr. Clare McManus (Reader, English Literature, Roehampton University), Dr. Richard Johns (Curator of Prints and Drawings, National Maritime Museum, Greenwich) and Dr. Aislinn Loconte (Senior Lecturer, Art History, Roehampton University).
