Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships
The Library has been successful in applying for a Collaborative Doctoral Partnership (CDP) award from the AHRC. This award covers six doctoral studentships each year for three years, from 2013-2016. Each studentship will be jointly supervised by a member of the British Library curatorial team and an academic from a UK Higher Education Institution, as with the existing CDA scheme. The HEI will administer the studentship, receiving funds from the AHRC for fees and to cover the student’s maintenance. The British Library will provide additional financial support to cover travel and related costs in carrying out research of up to £1,000 a year.
Following a competitive selection process, these are the successful research topics and HEIs for 2014:
- Britain and Latin America: Slavery, Independence and Empire, 1791-1888 – University of Liverpool
- The Decca Record Company of the 1960s and 70s: the legacy of Christopher Raeburn – University of Sheffield
- Music, Print and Culture in the 16th and Early 17th Centuries – Royal Holloway. Applications now open, closing date Thursday 13th March 2014.
- The Russian Revolution – University of Nottingham
- The Russian Revolution – Queen Mary
- Stefan Zweig Collection Literary Manuscripts – University of Bristol
Applications for the remaining studentships will open shortly.
Further detail on the CDP and CDA schemes is available from the AHRC website.
