A new three year collaborative doctoral award with the University of Bristol History of Art Department and National Portrait Gallery (as part of the AHRC Thames Consortium) has just been announced. The three year funded studentship will investigate the production, transmission, and reception of engraved photographic theatrical portraiture in the mid-19th century. It will be co-supervised by Dr Dorothy Rowe and Dr Robin Francis (Head of the Heinz Archive and Library at the National Portrait Gallery).

The project ties in with a larger AHRC standard grant application currently under review, entitled 'The Visual Culture of Theatrical Celebrity in Britain 1830-1930' and submitted by Dr Rowe in collaboration with Lee Marshall (Sociology) and Catherine Hindson (Drama and Theatre Studies).

The award will be advertised in February 2014, with interviews taking place at the National Portrait Gallery in March. The successful candidate is expected to begin their award in October 2014. See the AHRC web page or contact Dr Price via d.rowe@bristol.ac.uk
