Subject:    AHRC Doctoral Studentships in Early Modern and Renaissance


AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Studentships in Early Modern and Renaissance 
Studies

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


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

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).

2.) The Landscape of Poverty in Later Stuart Essex
In collaboration with the Friends of Historic Essex, the Essex Record 
Office and The National Archives, we invite applications for doctoral 
research to explore and develop new understandings of poverty in early 
modern Essex, through the application of comparative and/or 
interdisciplinary methods, with a focus upon rural and urban communities 
in Essex. The student will be encouraged to test and develop suitable 
methodologies by drawing upon the hearth tax returns, exemption 
certificates, and parish and other local records relating to the 
experiences of poverty in the period c. 1660 to c. 1690. An interest in 
economic and social history, and/or local and regional studies in the 
early modern period is desirable, as is an interest in outreach 
activities. The successful candidate will have an exceptional level of 
access to the archives in the Essex Record Office in Chelmsford and The 
National Archives in Kew (London), and will benefit from the resources, 
experience, and support of the School of Arts.

The project will be supervised by Dr. Andrew Wareham (Roehampton 
University), Dr. Chris Thornton (Friends of Historic Essex), Professor 
Peter Edwards  (Roehampton University), Dr. Sara Pennell (Roehampton 
University), and Peter Seaman (The National Archives).

Closing date for the applications is Friday 5th of June at 5.00pm.
Interviews will take place in the week commencing 29th June or 6th July.
