PhD opportunity - Northern research

1. The University of Aberdeen invites applications for three PhD
on the theme of Northern Colonialism: Historical Connections, Contemporary

These studentships are part of the University's strategic investment in
northern research and aim to foster path-breaking interdisciplinary
research on the processes and impact of colonialism in the North. The
Northern Colonialism programme builds upon existing expertise in
Anthropology, Archaeology, History and Geology and is structured around
three themes: Economies and Polities, Environments, and Cultural

Doctoral students will undertake ethnographic, archaeological, archival,
museum and/or material culture research to consider the intersections of
history, colonialism, and contemporary social life in The North. The North
is defined here not so much by latitude as by the intersection of climatic,
environmental, historical, geopolitical and cultural conditions, all of
which come together to give the region a significance for the future of
life on earth quite out of proportion to its relatively sparse human
