Masters /Phd/Post Doctoral Grants applications : Five Hundred year Archive Project, University of Cape Town
The Archive and Public Culture Research Initiative (APC) at the University of Cape Town, has recently launched the first phase of a promising new project, the Five Hundred Year Archive (FYA). This project builds on a resurgence of research interest in the history of Southern Africa in the five-hundred year period before the advent of colonialism, with a focus on the Kwa Zulu Natal region. It aims to build an online research intervention that brings together a variety of institutional and discipline specific archival material in a collaborative, single searchable online portal.
The project has a small number of linked bursaries. We invite students who are either interested in the history of Southern Africa (particularly Swaziland, KwaZulu-Natal and the North Eastern Cape region of Southern Africa) between 1700-1830; and/or archival and technological theory and practice pertinent to creation of this research portal, to make application. Students based in disciplines other than history, including the creative and performing arts, sciences and education are also encouraged to apply
Interested individuals to please send an abstract outlining relevant research areas and a short CV. Enquiries and applications to be sent to FYA Project Manager, Renate Meyer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
