Stuart Hall PhD Scholarship

New jointly-funded PhD scholarship for 2017

Birkbeck is proud to announce a partnership with the Stuart Hall Foundation to jointly fund a Stuart Hall PhD Scholarship in 2017. Professor Stuart Hall had a major influence on many scholars at Birkbeck. He was an outstanding academic who throughout his life developed new areas of scholarship and research, established new organisations and entities and was a catalyst for a number of significant initiatives: journals like New Left Review and Soundings, the Birmingham Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies and the visual arts organisations Autograph ABP and Iniva (the Institute of International Visual Arts), and the award-winning arts building Rivington Place in east London.

The Stuart Hall PhD Scholarship will be awarded to one student in the School of Arts or the School of Social Sciences, History and Philosophy at Birkbeck next year and will cover fees and a stipend either full time for three years or part time for five years. The scholarship can be held in any of the Departments in these two Schools. It is expected that the award-winner will be working in an interdisciplinary area of study focused on one of Stuart Hall’s many areas of interest: cultural studies, psychosocial studies, ‘race’ and ethnicity studies, visual arts, politics and sociology.

Potential applicants who are interested in applying for this scholarship to should first apply to the Department of their choice for a PhD place, stating that they wish to be considered for the scholarship. Students interested in studying in the Department of Psychosocial Studies should submit an application for our MPhil/PhD Psychosocial Studies, or the MPhil/PhD Sociology with a supervisor in the Department. On being offered a place, they will be advised whether they are being entered into the competition for this scholarship.

Closing date for applications: 1 March 2017.

Interested applicants may contact Professor Stephen Frosh ( for more information.
