AHRC/ESRC funded research: ‘Cultural Sustainability? Liverpool in 2008’
£12,600 tax free stipend
An opportunity has arisen for a fully funded research studentship leading to the qualification of PhD based on research into the theory and practice of cultural policy. This research, focused on culture-led regeneration on Merseyside in the context of Liverpool as European Capital of Culture 2008 and associated with the research programme Impacts 08, will develop as an ethnographic study into the definition of creative industries. The studentship will seek to uncover new and unique ways of defining what it is to be a creative industries entrepreneur and how this perception supports or contradicts policy-oriented definitions of the sector, what happens within the sector and the importance of the sector to locality. Funding will cover student’s fees and a maintenance grant as above.
Applicants are required to submit a CV and a 2 page summary of the nature of their personal interest/expertise in the research as outlined in the further particulars. Submissions should be submitted to Alan Southern by 4pm on Friday the 21st September.
