As of September 2013 the Centre for Transnational History will welcome six new PhD researchers. Some of the PhDs have come through the Modern History MLitt Programme and the transnational modules offered as part of it and were successful in applying for PhD scholarships in St Andrews. The PhD projects will be linked to various members of staff and different projects such as Frank Müller’s project on nineteenth-century European monarchy funded by the AHRC. Others will analyse spatial aspects and transnational connections such as the Alps a transnational space or the perception of the Habsburg Empire during the long-nineteenth century.
More information on the individual PhD researchers and their projects will follow shortly.
Emma Hart has joined the Centre and makes an excellent fit with her research in early British-American and transatlantic history. She has broad interests ranging from consumer history, the American Revolution to early American urban history. Among other interests, Emma seeks to pursue a project revolving around the role of cities in the context of empires and globalisation.
The programme for the Summer School “From the Margins. Revisiting European History” is now available. We are very much looking forward to this first GRAINES summer school that will bring together 22 PhD researcher from across Europe and beyond Europe discussing issues and topics in European history along the three key themes: Circulations, Borders, Centres/Peripheries. The PhD researchers will be joined by ten member of staff from the GRAINES network.
