AHRC 4 Year Funded PhD Opportunity

Date / time: 11 January, 12:00 am

Call for Applications, deadline – 11 January 2023

The British Psychological Society (88,000 members) is the voice of UK psychology. Its internationally significant archive collection (founded in 1891-2) contains numerous neglected hidden histories of LGBTQIA+, Black and marginalised people.

A ground-breaking AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award – fully funded for 4 years – is on offer in a research partnership with the University of Leicester, that seeks to rediscover filed and forgotten histories, closed for over a century.

The BPS archive remains unused by researchers in the UK and globally. This project is ambitious and timely because it is based on a century of neglected evidence of LGBTQIA+, Black and marginalised histories of psychology in the UK. The BPS are committed to decolonising their collections and promoting public history by engaging with historic issues of discrimination in this CDA.

If you are interested, the deadline for applications is 11 January 2023 by 12 noon – do get in contact with the Lead PhD Supervisor, Professor Elizabeth Hurren, at the University of Leicester eh140@leicester.ac.uk – you can download more information from the AHRC Midlands4Cities website – https://www.midlands4cities.ac.uk/find-a-project/
