Texts, Contexts, Cultures (Structured PhD)
Texts, Contexts, Cultures is an interdisciplinary PhD research programme in the Arts and Humanities. It is delivered in cooperation between research hubs at three of Ireland's leading universities: The Moore Institute for Research in the Humanities and Social Sciences, National University of Ireland Galway; The Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin; The Graduate School, the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences, University College Cork.
Texts, Contexts, Cultures provides students with a PhD in their chosen discipline of the Arts and Humanities in four years of research and training. The programme is designed to integrate knowledge and use of new technologies and related professional placements into the traditional PhD. It encourages candidates to develop their research interests, ideas and skills in challenging, supportive interdisciplinary contexts. Their research interests will develop through a series of foundation year modules which are delivered at participating institutions by online learning media and video conferencing.
Texts, Contexts, Cultures is designed to prepare students for life after graduation. Participants benefit from thorough preparation in research skills transferable to a wide variety of settings. They will also have access to placements and mentoring systems in a broad range of some of the most exciting contemporary organisations in media, the cultural and creative industries, public administration and academe.
