TweetThis! Bangor University Scholarship - The College of Arts and Humanities

Research Areas
The College welcomes applications from all its disciplines, but will use these studentships to enhance its areas of research excellence. Successful candidates will be supervised by the leaders in these fields and - whilst spending the majority of their time pursuing their studies – successful studentship applicants will also work with these leaders to support projects in the areas by acting as assistants in research, teaching, or project management.

The areas of excellence are:
  • Cultural exchange - particularly issues surrounding the formation of national and other identities, minority cultures, or globalisation.
  • Multilingualism
  • Creativity and study of the creative process - in music, film, literature, other written text, and contemporary or new media.
  • Prehistoric, medieval and early modern Wales - and/or the parallel Celtic, English or European societies and contexts.
  • Twentieth century and contemporary Wales - and/or twentieth century and contemporary Britain or European Societies and contexts.
We anticipate that strong applications could be made to any of the College's academic schools.
