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.
