NUI Galway invites applications for a fully-funded four-year scholarship in the Digital Arts & Humanities structured PhD programme, to commence in January 2016. Scholarships are valued at €16,000 plus fees per annum. Entrants will be expected to have a first-class or upper second-class honours degree within a relevant discipline. Applicants proposing practice-based research should provide evidence of their work in the relevant area of practice.
Candidates who have applied previously to the DAH programme may apply for this scholarship only with a new proposal.
Applications are invited in the area of Digital Humanities or Digital Arts research.
Digital Humanities proposals should include a strong digital component, either as a core method of research and dissemination, or as a subject of research in itself. Proposals may address any topic within Digital Humanities, including (but not limited to): archives & preservation; authorship attribution; classical studies; corpus analysis; crowdsourcing; historical studies; interdisciplinary collaboration; internet history; literary studies; natural language processing; ontologies; scholarly editing; stylistics and stylometry; text-mining; textual studies; visualisation. Previous DAH students have also worked closely with researchers at the Insight Centre for Data Analytics in Galway (https://www.insight-centre.org/).
Digital Arts proposals may examine questions such as artistic practice informed by digital media; the intersection between artistic creativity and technological innovation; the impact of the digital on the form, structure and function of narrative. Proposals for practice-based doctorates are welcome as well as traditional academic formats.
Prospective applicants should identify and indicate potential supervisors for their research proposal: http://www.nuigalway.ie/findasupervisor/
