Course summary

Overview

PhD research programmes will allow you to explore your own interests in publishing, supported by the expertise of our staff.

You’ll be allocated two supervisors, with additional staff members available if necessary and possible professional support from the publishing industry. Our supervisors are experienced in most areas of publishing histories and practices, as well as design, digital media, creative writing and cultural theory.

You’ll conduct your research in a collaborative environment with strong links to research networks in our University and the wider community. We host and take part in many research events for staff and postgraduate students, including regular Faculty and departmental research seminars and international conferences.

Careers

We’ll provide you with many opportunities for career development and training, including help with arranging placements in publishing and publishing-related companies. We’ll do our best to provide you with a professional mentor, making sure that your project is of value to the industry and giving you the best chance for employment on completion.

We also offer research skills sessions, including writing up a paper for publication; placing an academic article; giving a conference paper; the doctoral writing style; updates on research methods and literature searches; internet training; editing skills for doctoral research; subsequent monograph publication; and dealing with festivals, agents, and publishers. You might also be able to take on teaching responsibilities in the department or organise research events like seminars and conferences.

We offer a suite of short courses in publishing-related areas, which will give you more opportunities to develop your professional skills on campus.
