Call for proposals for AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships with Imperial War Museums


Academics at UK universities are invited to submit proposals for Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships with Imperial War Museums (IWM).

AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships provide funding for collaborative, co-supervised PhDs using IWM’s archives and expertise. The topics for which we are seeking partners in 2019 are:

  • Berlin: British Cold War City, 1945-1994.
  • The influence of contemporary culture on young combatants during and after the civil conflicts in West Africa (1991 – 2005); explored through the archives of ‘trans-media’ journalist Tim Hetherington.
  • Managing the long term preservation needs of plastics in IWM collections.
  • Radioactivity and Collections Management: exposing the challenges of safe working; access and display of WW2 collections.
