PhD-Network: The Internationalisation of Literature and Science since the Early Modern Period

King’s College London and the University of Stuttgart are pleased to announce a new round of applications to their successful PhD-Network: “The Internationalisation of Literature and Science since the Early Modern Period”. Since 2008, this network has been run collaboratively by the two universities, and is based around a bi-national PhD programme which leads to the award of a Joint PhD by both institutions. The PhD-programme aims to forge interdisciplinary connections between various subjects in the Humanities (German Studies, Philosophy, English Studies, Comparative Literature, History, as well as the Histories of Medicine, Science and Technology). Partner institutions include the German Literature Archive in Marbach and the Institute for the History of Medicine of the Robert Bosch Foundation.

The programme is particularly interested in projects which address inter- and trans-national tendencies within the Humanities. Projects will develop both theoretical models for the as yet under-researched area of internationalisation, as well as critically assess historical case studies from the early modern period onwards. Specific areas of interest include the role of exchange movements and networks and the transfer of topics, practices and methods in literature and/or science. Current projects cover a diverse range of subjects, including the internationalisation of satire in Early Modern texts; the development of scientific conceptualisations of history in the late 19th and early 20th centuries; the international reception of contemporary German bestsellers; and the dissemination of theories of totalitarianism around the globe.

Applicants from all disciplines are welcome to apply to the programme. Support includes a PhD stipend of 2,000 GBP a year for all successful candidates not otherwise funded by a full scholarship and who decided to undertake the full Joint-PhD.

The PhD programme lasts three years, and students registered at King’s will spend their second year at our partner university in Stuttgart. The programme is bilingual, and as such some knowledge of German is desirable for English speaking applicants.

Applications should include:

- a CV
- a brief project outline (max. 2,000 words) including the topic, thesis, state of research, methods and a plan of work
- a cover letter (max. 600 words) explaining your interest in the programme and the thematic connections between your research project and your previous academic experience
