AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award (CDA) PhD studentship for Landscape, memory, and trauma: cinematic depictions of the Holocaust

Applications are invited for an AHRC CDA doctoral studentship offered by the Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership, to start in the October or January of the 2020-21 academic year.

The studentship will be based in the Department of Geography. The successful applicant, will work on a collaborative project co-led by Professor Matthew Gandy (, Department of Geography and co-supervisor from the British Film Institute and Larysa Michalska, the Galicia Jewish Museum.

The studentship will involve exploring how cinematic depictions might function to sustain the memory of the Holocaust for those who did not live through it, forming mnemonic frameworks that resonate with public culture. It is thus an examination of the potential memorial role of cinema and possible post-cinematic media developments like virtual reality, the nature of contemporary memory and mediation, and practical pedagogical approaches to commemoration. The project seeks to examine these developments through a geographical lens, questioning how cinema mediates landscapes of Holocaust memory across Europe.


Full DTP studentships, for candidates who meet the AHRC residency requirements, will provide an annual maintenance grant to cover living costs (£15,009 pa at current rates) and will fully cover university tuition fees.
