Study Abroad Opportunities / Resouces available

University of Bristol - Hong Kong History Project Studentship

Funding: Full payment of tuition fees and maintenance stipend of £13,863 per annum. Overseas: £20,000 per annum

Application deadline: 16th February, 2015

The Project and the Studentship

The award is open to students embarking on PhD research in any aspect of the History of Hong Kong. We are looking for applicants interested in pursuing original research to be supervised by Professor Robert Bickers, and who also share a vision for public engagement of the discipline.

The studentship is funded by a generous donation from the Hatton Trust, as part of a new Hong Kong History Project based at the University of Bristol. This will be formally launched in January 2015, and aims to encourage and facilitate the study of the history of Hong Kong in the UK, and build new collaborations with partners in Hong Kong. Possible doctoral projects could include, but will not be restricted to: subjects in the history of Hong Kong society, politics, culture and economy under colonial rule; Hong Kong elites (social, cultural and political history), individuals and families, and their interactions with the colonial government, Hong Kong society, commerce and culture; migration; entrepreneurialism; Eurasians. The research contexts for this work could include (but are not be restricted to) modern Chinese and East Asian history, modern British colonial history, or global history. It is expected that the project would require Chinese language skills.

Alongside their research, the student will help with aspects of Past Matters, a festival of history at the University of Bristol, which normally takes place each spring and includes public lectures, workshops, and a range of community events and will also run a schools or community event that emerges from their PhD research interests.

How to apply

Please apply in writing to Professor Robert Bickers, at the Department of Historical Studies, Bristol University, 13 Woodland Road, Bristol BS8 1TB, or robert.bickers@bristol.ac.uk, with a formal research proposal, as well as a statement (no more than 1 page) of your suitability for a role that combines academic research with public engagement.
