Opportunity: Structured PhD in Digital Arts and Humanities (DAH): University College Cork(UCC)

University College Cork(UCC): CACSSS Graduate School Graduate Research Education Programme (GREP) Structured PhD in Digital Arts and Humanities (DAH).

Digital tools offer an opportunity to ask new, often radical, questions about humanities research. The Digital Arts and Humanites PhD programme provides an opportunity for students to explore how “digital” is changing the face of the “arts and humanities”. Students on the programme will seek to discover what is it to be human in the digital age, and the answers will help to shape how we see ourselves and others in an age where humanity is becoming increasingly connected by ubiquitous technology.

PhD in Digital Arts and Humanities

Applications are invited for four-year doctoral studentships with the structured PhD programme in Digital Arts and Humanities (DAH). The studentships come with a stipend of 16,000 euro per year. Fees for Irish and EU citizens are fully covered. Fees for non-EU citizens will be determined by individual universities and will be determined by the shortfall between the fee charged for EU citizens and the fee for non-EU students. Successful candidates will be registered with the full-time interdisciplinary structured PhD programme co-ordinated with an all-Irish university consortium. Studentships are provided at Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork, National University of Ireland, Galway, and National University of Ireland, Maynooth. The Royal Irish Academy and the Northern Ireland universities, Queen’s University Belfast and University of Ulster, contribute teaching but do not provide funded studentships.
