Ph.D. Scholarships at University of Hull

To celebrate the University's research successes, 30 UK/EU PhD scholarships and 30 international PhD fees bursaries have been made available across the University’s research areas. The Wilberforce Institute welcomes applications for these scholarships to study historical and modern forms of slavery as well as processes of emancipation. We are particularly interested in the following areas:

  • Historical patterns of slavery and slave trafficking.
  • Processes of slave emancipation and transitions to freedom.
  • Diasporas and their impact in the modern world.
  • Memories, legacies and representations of slavery and abolition.
  • Modern slavery, violence, human rights and development.
We remain happy to receive proposals relating to themes outside those specified above.

Formal applications for a scholarship need to be made through the University rather than through WISE. Further information on the scholarships is also available here: http://www2.hull.ac.uk/student/graduateschool/pdhscholarships.aspx
