Colleagues may be interested in the following CDA opportunity:
The National Railway Museum is currently advertising the latest studentship in the Science Museum Group's collaborative doctoral programme, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. It's a collaboration with the Department of History at the University of York, and is called Railways and Commemoration: Anniversaries, Commemorative Cultures and the Making of Railway History.
Through the analysis of anniversaries, the project will explore how railways developed and maintained their corporate identities and helped to shape narratives of railway history. The research will make extensive use of the NRM's collections and will also assess the museum's own role as an interpreter of history and venue for commemoration. The student will begin their research in the autumn term of this year.
