Dear colleagues,

I'd be grateful if you could promote the following fully-funded PhD opportunities to suitable candidates in the broad fields of archaeology, environmental studies, geography, heritage, history, literature and landscape.

More information about the network is available on the website of the White Rose College of the Arts and Humanities: http://wrocah.ac.uk/new-student/networks/

The deadline for applications is 30 May 2018.

Best wishes, Bob


1.    Tracing coastal storm flooding in landscape and literature

PI Dr Katherine Selby, York [log in to unmask]
Co-I Dr David Higgins, Leeds

Coastal floods, resulting from a combination of high tides, storm surges, and waves, are a serious global hazard. They will become more prevalent over the coming century due to sea level rise and continued growth of coastal populations. Coastal flooding has also occurred in the past, as recorded within landforms such as saltmarshes and dunefields, as well as in written descriptions such as Daniel Defoe’s The Storm (1704). Drawing on methodologies from environmental archaeology, geography and literary studies, this PhD will integrate fieldwork and textual analysis in order to investigate how flooding has affected UK coastal areas and the people who inhabit them, over the last 500 years. The project will also reflect on how this novel integration of field and discursive evidence can offer new perspectives and insights into present and future responses to flooding and storminess.


2.    Living well with water: complex stories, democratic decision-making

PI Dr Helen Graham, Leeds [log in to unmask]
Co-I Dr Anna Jorgensen

Management of flood risks will affect where and how people live and the heritage and aesthetics of well-loved places. This PhD will use action research to experiment with different storytelling approaches for collective exploration, debate and decision-making. How might different constituencies from public institutions to people directly affected co-produce understandings of change in order to underpin flood planning and make together a viable future? Key points of reference will be Catlin DeSilvey’s ‘anticipatory histories’ and ‘visualisations’ where key moments of past change are brought to life in order to imagine different futures. The project will use the capacities of stories to explore the links between place, well-being and democracy; how to respond to things beyond your direct control yet also feel what you do makes a difference in a complex world.


3.    Water takes land: interactive deep maps of England's lost villages

PI Dr Bob Johnston, Sheffield [log in to unmask]
Co-I Dr Debbie Maxwell, York

How do we remember and engage with landscapes lost to flooding? This question has resonance in the present day as humanity faces large-scale land loss due to climate change. It is also, in a more discrete sense, an experience in our recent past when valleys were deliberately flooded to create reservoirs. These floods destroyed farms and villages and dislocated communities. The student will research the landscape histories and the human stories of selected flooded valleys in northern England. The student will work with communities living close to the reservoirs and those affected by the floods to create different, interactive ‘deep maps’ of land loss (e.g. media-rich digital storytelling or augmented reality). The project’s methodology and technologies will have applicability in regions where future flood waters will take land and transform landscapes.
