Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship Award, Liverpool Hope University

Research Supervisors: Dr Guy Cuthbertson and Associate Professor William Blazek

Research Topic: The Literature of the First World War

Closing Date: 14 March 2016

The successful candidate will be supervised by Dr Guy Cuthbertson and Associate Professor William Blazek, both of whom have published widely in the field of First World War literature.  They will consider proposals on any aspect of First World War literature, but their own research has been focused on the literature of Britain and the USA.  A focus on Wilfred Owen, Edward Thomas, the Georgians, Edwardian legacies, Edith Wharton, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, other American writers, or life-writing would be especially welcome. Liverpool Hope has excellent library resources for the study of the First World War.

Please contact Guy Cuthbertson at CuthbeG@hope.ac.uk if you would like to discuss a proposal. Continue reading
