PhD Opportunity: Advancing Collection Development through Supporting Refugee Publishing – Strategies for Libraries
The National Library of Scotland and the Centre for Postdigital Cultures at Coventry University are offering a fully-funded Collaborative Doctoral Partnership studentship to explore libraries' roles in collecting, presenting and supporting publishing of refugees and asylum seekers.
The PhD will be supervised by Dr Janneke Adema and Dr Judith Fathallah at Coventry University, Dr Patrick Hart and Dr Sarah Ames at the National Library of Scotland. The successful candidate will look at new forms of digital and open-access publishing and examine how libraries might play more active roles in supporting publishing by under-represented communities.
The studentship is open to UK and international applicants. We welcome applications from those with lived experience of forced displacement and migration.
The studentship offers an excellent opportunity to combine academic training with practice-based experience and research in a national library, and to gain a range of transferable professional skills. For more information and to apply, visit the Coventry University website.
