AHRC collaborative doctoral award

The Department of English at King’s College London, in collaboration with Tate, is pleased to offer one AHRC-funded Collaborative Doctoral Partnership award, starting in September 2015 for a period of up to three years.

The award will enable the student to pursue doctoral research in visual/literary studies while gaining first-hand experience of work within a museum setting. The successful applicant will be enrolled at, and receive their degree from King’s College London. Supervisors are: Professor Mark W. Turner (Department of English, King’s College London) and Dr Clare Barlow (Tate Britain).

The ‘Beyond Bloomsbury: Queer/Race/Art’ doctoral project will focus on  the intersections between ethnicity and queer sexualities in British art, c. 1900-1940. The student will be working in tandem with an exhibition at Tate currently being planned for 2017.
