TECHNE Collaborative Doctoral Programmes at Roehampton

Applications for 2020/21 are now open

Department of English and Creative Writing, The Centre for Research in Romanticism at the University of Roehampton and Keats House, The Keats House collections: constructing Romantic lives and afterlives

The aim of this project is to investigate the ways that a writer’s house and its collections can actively contribute to the cultural memory, reputation and appreciation of a canonical author. The exact topic of the PhD will be decided by the student in conjunction with supervisors, but we expect the development of the collections to provide an outstanding opportunity to put new research insights into practice through actual and virtual curation of the collections.

Roehampton University in collaboration with Black Cultural Archives (BCA), Black Mental Health Activists in Late Twentieth-Century Britain

This project will examine the role and significance of Black mental health activists in late twentieth-century Britain. Black activists have long recognised that psychiatric practices and biases have led to disproportionate numbers of people from Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority (BAME) communities being diagnosed with mental illness and detained under the Mental Health Act.
