PhD Studentships at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies

The Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies has three PhD studentships on offer, funded as part of an ESRC Professorial Fellowship award awarded to Professor Celia Lury on the topic ‘Order and Continuity: Methods of Change in a Topological Society’.

The primary objective of the Fellowship is to investigate the claim that contemporary society is becoming topological in a series of projects designed to investigate whether or not the topological characteristics of ordering and continuity of transformation can be identified across the domains of economy, politics and culture. A particular focus will be the role of the mixed or composite methods of modeling, measuring and mapping in the enactment of change and continuity.

The three linked PhD projects are:

– Economic models and economic life

– Mapping political spaces

– Digital economies and publics
