Dear all,
Kent is offering three funded PhD places in their interdisciplinary Material World programme: http://kent.materialworld.eu/

The call for applicants invites research proposals within the broad theme of the Material World, which would be excellently suited for a wide range of research interests, such as urban morphology, geography, archaeology, spatial science, anthropology, history, and computing. This programme runs alongside other interdisciplinary and digital humanities PhD programmes at Kent, such as CHASE and Eastern ARC.



MaterialWorld at Kent is rooted in the conviction that individual researchers are likely to have or gain special expertise in one or perhaps two of these areas - interrogation, interpretation, invention - but that a sophisticated understanding of all three will enhance their professional development and research.
o    Interrogate. Answer questions about the nature, construction, age, condition, history, function, and authenticity of materials using a variety of tools and techniques.
o    Interpret. Consider the meaning and value of heritage sites, artefacts, materials in scientific, cultural, historical, legal, political, social, economic, and philosophical frameworks.
o    Invent. Create  new things: materials themselves; computer generated structures and materials in virtual worlds; and new objects such as works of art and structures such as buildings.

There is a programme of conferences, seminars, practicums and opportunities for work experience, supported by the Material Aspects Knowledge Exchange group (MAKE), an interdisciplinary academic community of specialists in materials, material culture, and materiality.

The deadline to apply to these places is 31st of May 2015 for a September 2015 start.

All the best,
