Collaborative Doctoral Award: The History of the Photographic Picture Postcard

The Department of History, University of Nottingham, in partnership with the British Museum invites applications from suitably qualified UK/EU candidates for a full-time 3-year Collaborative Doctoral Award, funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council, to conduct research on the theme: ‘Site-Seeing: Postcards of the Middle East & the Visual Construction of Place, 1890s to 1990s.

The PhD project will examine the role of the photographic picture postcard as a crucial technology of 20th-century visual culture and modern place-making. It will draw on the Museum’s expansive collection of postcards of the Middle East, spanning colonial and postcolonial periods, and analyse the production and use of these postcards both as visual media and as material objects.

The Studentship will start on 1 October 2015. For further details of the award, the research project and procedures for applying, please see link below. The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Friday 27 February 2015.
