The expertise of our staff is particularly suited to students wishing to pursue topics of contemporary culture, disasters, modern history, transportation, and translation.
The School can nominate candidates for a PhD (or for an MA in Translation Studies with a focus on Japanese) for a studentship of £10,000. This studentship is for one year only beginning in September of the 2018/19 academic year.
PhD programmes in an area related to Japan and which fits with one of the five research themes of the School of Modern Languages (‘Borders & Bodies', ‘Capitalism, Crisis & Ideology', ‘Development, Disaster & Conflict', ‘Picturing Others', or ‘Translation, Adaptation and Performance') will be considered.
Applications for students wishing to do the MA in Translation Studies with a focus on Japanese will also be considered.
