Applications will be accepted from suitably qualified applicants entering the first year of doctoral study in session 2011/12. Applicants must be able to demonstrate the relevance of their proposed project to themes within or closely related to Professor Bloxham’s areas of research interest. There are: the study of the perpetration, punishment and representation of genocide and other instances of extreme violence.
