The University of Lincoln is investing over half a million pounds in new strategic research opportunities, including fully-funded PhD studentships to start in September 2014, and three of the available studentships include active members of the Nineteenth-Century Research Group on the supervisory team.

Professor Lucie Armitt, Dr Rebecca Styler, and Dr Martin Eve (all Humanities) are open to candidates proposing nineteenth-century research topics for the studentship ‘Gothic: Literary Travel and Tourism‘.

Dr Jim Cheshire (Art & Design) and Dr Hannah Field (Humanities) invite book-historical proposals related to the Tennyson Research Centre for ‘Tennyson in His Library: Reading, Writing, and Collecting Books in the Nineteenth Century‘.

Dr Kate Hill (Humanities) and Dr Anna Catalani (Architecture), whose proposed studentship is entitled ‘British Archaeology in the Nineteenth Century: Between Antiquarianism and Science‘, encourage applicants interested inĀ investigating the history of British archaeology in the nineteenth century.
