School of Art History/Art UK Collaborative PhD Scholarship.

3 May 2024

The School of Art History in collaboration with Art UK is offering a scholarship for doctoral research in digital art history for starting in September 2024.


Art UK is a digital repository for all public art collections in the UK. It houses data from over 3,400 institutions, totalling more than 300,000 works of art by over 50,000 artists. The collections range from museums and town halls to universities and hospitals.


We welcome research proposals on any aspect of art history or museum and heritage studies. Proposals should indicate how the applicant intends to utilise ArtUK data in their research. Potential subjects include, but are not limited to: the histories of British collecting practices; the representation of women and minority artists in British collections; and the origins and development of university and teaching collections.


The scholarship covers tuition fees for the 3 years of the PhD programme, and is available to Home/EU and overseas students.
