UK/EU students interested in applying for the AHRC South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership (SWW DTP), a funding scheme for PhD students in the arts and humanities, are invited to attend the SWW DTP Information Day on November 28 in Cardiff. Registration is free but must be completed by November 13: https://swwdtp.fluidreview.com/.

Students interested in joining the excd.lab through this scheme are advised to get in contact with Fiona as soon as possible. The SWW DTP provides full funding and a stipend for three years, as well as additional research funds and opportunities for training and professional development (including placements of up to six months with national and international consortium partners). A unique advantage of the SWW DTP is co-supervision across two different universities, allowing students to take advantage of the academic and social resources of two different institutions. Potential students who projects are anthropological and/or linguistic in nature can refer to the Joint Guidance from the AHRC and ESRC on these “interface” subjects. The 2017 deadline is January 12.
