From June 2013 the German Historical Institute London is offering a three-year PhD scholarship as part of the project “Cultures of Intelligence. A Research Project on the History of the Intelligence Services in Germany, Britain and the USA, 1900-1947”, funded by the Gerda Henkel Foundation.
Applicants should deal specifically with the cultural history of the British Intelligence Service between 1900 and the Second World War and should focus in particular on how the Secret Intelligence was represented in the British literature and expert discourses during the first half of the twentieth century. The thesis is incorporated into a joint project with the University of Augsburg (Prof Gassert), Leeds (Prof Ball) and the London School of Economics (Prof Neitzel), where it will be supervised.
The scholarship amounts to 1400 Euro. Separate funds are available for trips to archives and payment of study fees can be negotiated. Applicants have to have a first in their Master’s Degree.
Applications (with the usual documents and the names of two referees) should be sent by 6 June 2013 to Prof Andreas Gestrich
