The Department of History at the University of Nottingham invites applications from suitably-qualified candidates for a full-time studentship in Auditory Histories of Occupation in Twentieth-Century Asia. The studentship is offered through the project, Cultures of Occupation in Twentieth-Century Asia (COTCA), led by Dr Jeremy E. Taylor. The successful candidate will develop an auditory or sonic history study of foreign occupation in twentieth-century East and/or Southeast Asia.
How has foreign occupation shaped culture? What are the lasting cultural legacies of foreign occupation in the modern era? These are key questions which, in light of continuing occupations around the world, remain crucial today.
