These awards, to be taken up in October 2015, are intended to contribute to the continued development of the University’s thriving research community.
“Competition for the awards was fierce, with excellent applications and project proposals across all subject areas,” said Professor Millie Taylor, Director of Postgraduate Research Students at the University of Winchester. “We are delighted to have an excellent group of students joining us and look forward to their work enriching the University and making an impact locally, regionally and nationally.”
The funding has opened the door to diverse research topics from managing innovation in small and medium business enterprises to negotiating endings in contemporary fiction.
Additional thesis proposal topics include modern liberal arts and their discontents; the efficacy of central haemodynamic parameters in stroke patients; English ‘career’ soldiers in the fifteenth century; the place of art; consensual BDSM; criticism as entertainment; and the twenty-first century Black Atlantic.
“We are excited to see such a variety of research proposals”, added Professor Simon Jobson, Director of Research and Knowledge Exchange. “Here at Winchester, we aim to foster an environment which respects the unique interests and passions of students. These studentships have provided funding for deserving students, who we look forward to welcoming into our research community.”
The University has just announced a further round of 175th anniversary research studentships, for places available from December 2015. For further information please visit www.winchester.ac.uk/175studentships
