Current research in the area of Czech Studies at the University of Glasgow concentrates on different aspects of 20th century Czech film, media, and literature studies, with a strong research record in topics such as culture and identity, and examination of different discoursive approaches to self-examination and myth making. Comparative and interdisciplinary proposals, which examine the Czech topics within Central European and global contexts are especially welcome. Research proposals in other areas of study relating to the Czech Republic will be also considered.
The purpose of the Madeleine Albright PhD Scholarship in Czech Studies is to foster international understanding of the political and social culture of contemporary Czech Republic.
Before applying for one of the Madeleine Albright PhD scholarships, students should have applied for and received a conditional or unconditional acceptance for their proposed programme of study through the online application process:http://www.gla.ac.uk/colleges/arts/graduateschool/prospectivestudents/researchstudy/howtoapply/
