New Funded Studentship Announced in Collaboration with the Imperial War Museums

‘If it’s printed it’s true’?: a critical reassessment of the IWM’s Black Propaganda collection

The School of Politics and International Relations is delighted to announce that applications are now open for a fully funded collaborative doctoral studentship.

In collaboration with the Imperial War Museums (IWM), and under the Arts and Humanities Research Council's (AHRC) Collaborative Doctoral Partnership Scheme, this project will examine British use of Black Propaganda in the Second World War. It will be supervised by Professor Rory Cormac (University of Nottingham) and Jane Rosen (IWM). 

The student will be expected to spend time at both institutions, as well as becoming part of the wider cohort of CDP funded students across the UK. The studentship can be taken up either full or part-time. Students should have an excellent academic record at undergraduate level. A master’s degree in a relevant subject would be welcome, but it is not a requirement. Those able to demonstrate equivalent experience in a professional setting will also be considered. 

Applications close on 15 May 2023. Further details on the project and eligibility criteria for applicants can be found on the University of Nottingham vacancy listing
