The University of Worcester is seeking to expand its research strength in Media and Cultural Studies. In the government’s last Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), Research Fortnight identified Worcester as the most improved university in the UK. Researchers in our Media and Culture course team contributed to that success and continue to produce publications of regional, national, and international significance. We are now seeking aspiring researchers who will benefit from that environment and who could, at the same time, consolidate and re-shape our existing research specialisms. As a postgraduate researcher you could also help enhance our University-wide focus on producing distinctive research in Arts, Culture and Heritage.
To this end, the University of Worcester is offering a full time, fully funded PhD studentship to address, broadly, one of the following three areas: social media; eco-media; media, culture and sport. These studentships offer an exciting opportunity to help expand media and cultural studies in new discrete areas of study which are beginning to receive critical attention. It is, therefore, an important element of these studentships that the direction of the project should primarily be determined by the skills, knowledge and interests of the applicant. Seeking applications that address the broad headings below, we also welcome enquiries from anyone thinking creatively and uniquely around the areas specified or who might wish to propose an alternative angle.
For general enquiries about the studentship, please contact Dr John Parham (firstname.lastname@example.org). For enquiries around specific topics contact the researcher identified below.
