Job: Funded doctoral studentship in cultural network analysis (UCL and V&A, London)

A Funded PhD in Digital Humanities at UCL and V&A

UCL and the V&A Museum are pleased to announce the availability of a fully funded Collaborative Doctoral Studentship from October 2024 under the AHRC’s Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships (CDP) scheme.

This interdisciplinary doctoral project aims to critically assess and visualise the complex networks behind the acquisition of the V&A’s Asia collection, comprising over 165,000 objects. By employing digital humanities methods to the V&A’s registers and archives, the project seeks to address gaps in provenance data and contextualise the collection within the wider frameworks of imperialism, trade, and collecting practices.

This project will be jointly supervised by Dr Elizabeth Lomas, Dr Jacques Schuhmacher, Dr Jin Gao, Anna Jackson and Richard Palmer, and the student will be expected to spend time at both UCL and the V&A, as well as becoming part of the wider cohort of CDP funded students across the UK.
