The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain: PhD Scholarships 2018
The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain (SAHGB) is accepting applications for two PhD scholarships for the academic year 2018/19.
We are offering funding for:
- 1 x full-time scholarship (3 years maximum) with the condition that the topic of study falls within British architectural history, however broadly conceived. Funded by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation
- 1 x full (3 years maximum) or part time (6 years maximum) student, and we particularly encourage topics that extend beyond British architectural history and investigate other global regions
These scholarships are aimed at those who have already been accepted by a UK university department with a research proposal, and who are seeking to secure funding. Our funding follows the annual rate of maintenance set as the National Minimum Doctoral Stipend by Research Councils UK. We do not offer an award for university fees.
Applications must be received by midday on 7 May 2018. Full details about how to apply are available here
The Society welcomes applications from students with developed research proposals approaching architectural history from a range of disciplinary backgrounds including history, art history, architecture, and geography, as well as multi- or trans-disciplinary approaches. You do not need to have studied architectural history formally before, nor do you need to be a member of the Society, but your project must relate to the history of the built environment, broadly conceived. There is no limitation on methodology; we welcome diversity of approach. Possible topics might encompass:
- Histories of design
- Histories of construction
- Histories of planning
- Histories of buildings in use
- Histories of interiors and interior design
- Histories of practice and professionalism
- Heritage studies
The Society encourages applications from candidates from diverse backgrounds.

PhD FUNDING OPPORTUNITY: AHRC CHASE Collaborative Doctoral Award
GLASS, CERAMICS, LEATHER, AND METALWORK IN MEDIEVAL LONDON
Is a broken artwork useless?
What can only a fragment of something tell us about the past?
The University of East Anglia, in partnership with the Museum of London, invites applications from suitably qualified UK/EU candidates for a full-time or part-time Collaborative Doctoral Award, funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council through the CHASE doctoral training partnership, to conduct research as part of the Beautiful Fragments Project.
This Collaborative Doctoral Award will support PhD research into the role played by fragmentary objects in understanding the art and visual culture of the later Middle Ages (c.1000-1500).
RESEARCH GRANTS FOR BYZANTINE STUDIES
Koç University Center for Late Antique and Byzantine Studies Center (GABAM) offers a limited number of grants to support scholars in projects about Archaeology and History of Art of the Byzantine civilization. Research grants of up to 20,000 euros are available. The amount awarded will be determined by GABAM according to the proposed project. The project for which funding is requested can be part of a wider research program but must be defined as a separate entity.
The construction of churches or church buildings is obviously as old as the dominance of Christianity in Western societies. The petrification of ecclesiastical wealth, however, implied a more recognisable and enduring presence for this institution throughout the medieval landscape, both urban and rural. The building of churches, and to a lesser extent monasteries, was also promoted by the laity. These were initiatives and investments that were partly religious in origin, in so far as they were ways to ensure the eternal salvation of the founders or of the community involved. The proliferation of masonry-built churches may also raise the question of other objectives of the secular world. Sometimes the laity invested in churches to provide a new, or at least a stronger, more formalised and more recognizable community identity.
SPRING CONFERENCE BURSARY – 2018
The 2018 Spring Conference of the Vernacular Architecture Group will be held at Bangor
University in North Wales from Tuesday 3 April until Saturday 7 April 2018. During the day members will tour the locality, visiting and interpreting lesser traditional buildings; lecturesand discussions will be held in the evenings. The visits will cover Anglesey (Wednesday), the Denbighshire Clwyd and Upper Dee valleys (Thursday) and the Conwy valley (Friday). Evening speakers will include Andrew Davidson, David Gwyn, Richard Suggett and Richard Bebb.
The Vernacular Architecture Group is able to offer three bursaries to assist registered
students or professionals in the early years of their career to attend the Conference. The
Committee is aware that the cost often makes attendance difficult for students and others who might benefit from the lectures and discussions, and from the opportunity to meet people active in the field. There is no age limit, and both full-time and part-time students are welcome to apply.
