This innovative scholarship programme provides an opportunity for postgraduate research students to undertake a package of training and career development, including teaching or research assistance, and to join a research network concentrated in a particular field of study.
Competing notions of Liberalism informed domestic and imperial British politics during the long nineteenth century. And yet, its particular influence on Irish and Scottish thought remains woefully understudied. Drawing from the expertise of Prof. Michael Brown, Dr Colin Barr, and Dr Bradford Bow in the fields of Irish history, Scottish history, and intellectual and political history, the proposed network will solicit applications for two places to study Irish and Scottish Liberalism in the period between 1798 and 1914.
Opportunity Focus Areas:
- Irish and Scottish Liberalism
ALL WORLD COUNTRIES
The awards are open to Overseas students applying to start their first year of study for a research degree in 2020-2021.
