        Subject: PhD Scholarships at Galway

NUI Galway invites applications for a four-year fully funded scholarship in
Digital Arts & Humanities to commence by January 2020. The closing date for

Digital Humanities proposals should include a strong and clearly defined 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; digital
scholarly editing; distant reading; historical studies; interdisciplinary
collaboration; internet history; literary studies; ontologies; stylistics and
stylometry; text-mining; textual studies; visualisation.

Digital Arts proposals may examine questions such as artistic practice informed
by digital media; the intersection between artistic creativity and technological
innovation; or 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.

Previous Digital Arts & Humanities PhD students have also worked closely with
researchers at the Data Science Institute at NUI Galway
(https://datascienceinstitute.ie/) and co-supervision may be sought from this
research centre.

For further information please contact Professor Daniel Carey, Moore Institute
or Dr Justin Tonra, Discipline of English
