Kent has PhD Studentship for Indigenous Arts and Environmental Justice research
Two academics from the University of Kent have won a prestigious collaborative doctoral award to provide a fully funded PhD studentship to examine the history of Indigenous artistic engagement with environmental rights across protests and protest sites in North America.
Professor David Stirrup – American Literature and Indigenous Studies – and Dr Matthew Whittle from the Centre for Indigenous and Settler Colonial Studies (CISCS) at the University of Kent, together with Dr Alicia Krömer from the Indigenous Rights NGO – Incomindios UK – are delighted to announce a collaborative doctoral award in the area of ‘Indigenous Arts and Environmental Justice’ awarded by the AHRC CHASE consortium.
The Centre for Indigenous and Settler Colonial Studies brings together scholars in the Humanities and Social Sciences with individual interests in the Americas, Oceania, Western Asia, Southern Africa, and northern Europe, and with a collective interest in the global frameworks of Critical Indigenous Studies (CIS).
The project brings together an international team of researchers and Native North American people to amplify the stories of Indigenous travellers in the historical record and in the current moment.
