Course summary

The University of Brighton has a thriving research culture for History PhD students, built around its highly-reputed research Centre of Memory, Narrative and Histories.

Our primary strength as an academic community is in modern history, including global perspectives on the twentieth-century. Our historians use a wide range of interdisciplinary methodologies that draw on social, political and cultural history and investigate the complex interconnections between present and past, evoked by concepts of memory.

Research expertise for History PhD study at the university covers documentary and oral histories, literary and cultural analysis,?political, moral and applied philosophy and contemporary critical theory, as well as exciting interdisciplinary combinations, and we welcome approaches for supervision in any of these areas.

We have an excellent record in achieving funding for PhD students in history and related studies.

Together with colleagues from closely related Centres of Research and Enterprise Excellence (COREs), we offer supervision for projects that cross disciplines in the arts, humanities and social sciences and our department thrives on its interdisciplinary interests and the close research culture that stems from it.

Your supervisory team and academic network can draw on expertise in, for example, cultural studies, social anthropology, cultural geography, art and design history, art practices, media and visual studies, performance studies, critical theory, sociology, psycho-social studies, critical heritage studies, narrative theory, archive and museum studies and digital humanities.

Our graduates have gone on to work in, among other fields, academia and the heritage and museum sectors. We welcome approaches to discuss suitable projects and can provide advice on application, proposals and any suitable funding.
