PhD/DPhil - Doctor of Philosophy
Our PhD research programmes will allow you to explore your own interests in history, supported by the expertise of our staff.
You’ll be allocated two supervisors, with additional staff members available if necessary. Our supervisors are experienced in most areas of history, with a focus on Labour history, the British Empire, local history, the monarchy and aristocracy, Russian history and the history of popular culture.
We’ll provide you with a rich and stimulating research environment with strong links to research networks in Anglia Ruskin and the wider community, including the University of Cambridge's Centre for Research into Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities (CRASSH). We host the Labour History Research Unit (LHRU), which promotes fresh approaches to Labour history – both British and international – through seminars, conferences, postgraduate studies and scholarly publications, and contribute to many of the Faculty’s other research groups, including the Story Lab Research Institute.
We’ll provide you with many opportunities for career development and training, in areas like 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 working with agents and publishers. You might also be able to take on teaching responsibilities in the department or organise research events.
In conjunction with the University’s research support, you can request specific support for writing-up, conference papers, general research methods and other research skills if you need it.
