PhD Scholarships in UCD School of English, Drama and Film

The School of English, Drama and Film at University College Dublin currently has three generously funded Ad Astra PhD studentships available that include an annual stipend, full fee waivers, and an annual research allowance. The deadline for applications is 10 April 2020. Full details can be found online here:

I will be supervising one of the PhD studentships. I am interested in supervising projects in the following research areas:

  • literary and economic criticism (especially of the long nineteenth century);
  • Romantic women writers (especially Jane Austen);
  • settler colonial literature (especially Australia and South Africa);
  • emigration/travel literature;
  • book history and history of reading in the nineteenth century;
  • postcolonial literature (especially Anglophone literature of the Global South)

If you’re interested in applying for the scholarship under my supervision, please get in touch with me. You can find my research profile here:
