About this project
The University of Hull is part of the ESRC White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership - a collaboration between the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield, York, Sheffield Hallam, Hull, Bradford and Manchester Metropolitan University - and through this is able to offer a range of ESRC funded Postgraduate Scholarships.
The University of Hull can accept applications to five Interdisciplinary Themed Pathways of ESRC training in the 1+3 (Masters and PhD), +3 (PhD only), for both full and part-time study. Applicants who would not have an equivalent qualification already would need to take the MSc Social Research (DTP). The MSc can be funded as part of a DTP studentship, but applications and also encouraged from people undertaken this or a similar masters already.
This pathway increases understanding of changing natures of civil and political society paying attention to governance, institutions, community, individuals, migration and difference. Themes addressed include political climate of devolution, constitutional change, democracy, legitimacy, and citizenship; set within context of crises, inequality, uneven international development, public policy and rising powers.
At the University of Hull, we offer doctoral students the opportunity to contribute to and benefit from our research excellence in understanding the changing nature of civil and political society: governance, institutions, community, individuals, migration, and difference.
Active areas of our high-ranking rated research address topics including political climate of devolution, constitutional change, patterns and processes of democracy, legitimacy, and citizenship.
Current research within the School of Environmental Sciences is set within the broader context of crisis, inequality, processes and patterns of uneven international development, public policy, situated development studies, and dynamics of rising powers.
This pathway is led at Hull by Elsbeth Robson.
