If you’ve been hoping for the opportunity to do a PhD focusing on ‘media, race and cultural production’ you now have the perfect opportunity. Recently posted by Brunel University, London, the fully funded studentship at the College of Business Arts and Social Science offers the chance to ‘undertake theoretical and empirical collaborative research with a variety of community collaborators’ for ‘an analysis of the history of anti-racist creative practice, including film, television, live performance, and digital media, that has emerged from within the UK’s South Asian, African and Caribbean Diasporas since the 1970s and up to the present day.’
You can find out everything you need to know about the post and how to apply here. The deadline for applications is the 31st May.
Brunel is also offering a post-doc position to provide research assistance on the three-year ‘Creative Interruptions’ project, of which the aforementioned PhD is a part of. The project is due to start this coming October, so if you already have a PhD (or are due to finish very soon) you can find out everything you need to know about this post and apply (also by the 31st May) here.
For those of you either just stating university and/or getting close to finishing your bachelors programme, no need to feel left out! If you were planning to continue studying but hadn’t exactly decided which avenue to take, don’t sleep on the new MA course being offered by Goldsmiths on Black British Writing at the Department of Theatre and Performance.
