The emergence of Holocaust memory in central and eastern Europe
Announcing a fully-funded three-year PhD studentship
The School of English at the University of Sheffield is pleased to announce a fully-funded three-year full-time PhD studentship on the topic of The emergence of Holocaust memory in central and eastern Europe. The project will be supervised by Sue Vice (principal supervisor) and Hugo Service (History, University of York).
This studentship will examine the emergence of Holocaust commemoration in post-communist eastern and central Europe. Its focus on the specificity of Holocaust memory could take the form of comparing it with that of other local histories of violence and expulsion, in relation to a literary, filmic, linguistic or historical perspective.
Closing date for applications: 5pm BST on Monday 8 May 2017
It is funded by the White Rose College of Arts and Humanities (WRoCAH), and will be part of a network of three studentships (at Sheffield, York and Leeds) on the topic of The Future of Holocaust Memory.
In addition to participating in this network and the wider School of English and WRoCAH research communities, the successful applicant will join a vibrant culture of Holocaust and memory studies at Sheffield that includes graduate students and postdoctoral scholars, with other new students starting in 2017-18.
Please visit the WRoCAH website for more information, including application details on all three studentships.
