PhD scholarship opportunity at the University of Roehampton

We are delighted to announce a new fully funded PhD scholarship in addition to the two PhD students already enrolled as part of this project. The successful PhD project would relate in some way to the ‘Memories of Fiction’ project. Although it could be indirect, the connection would involve at least two of the following topics: memory, reading, oral history, life stories, emotion, book studies. For more information on this and other Vice Chancellor’s Scholarships at the University of Roehampton, and for contact details, please go to http://www.roehampton.ac.uk/vcscholarships and follow the link for Department of English and Creative Writing.

Deadline: midnight 5th May 2015. Please note that the competition requires details of the proposed project, so allow plenty of time to complete.

For the other PhD projects see https://memoriesoffiction.org/2014/11/19/project-news/

Possible projects may include an investigation into crossovers between oral history and literature, for example, and/or may make use of the oral history archive being created for Memories of Fiction. We will be very happy to discuss your ideas.

For enquiries and to discuss proposals please contact Dr Shelley Trowershelley.trower@roehampton.ac.uk.
