PhD Studentships: Cluster – Exploring Culture through Music and Language

PhD Studentships: Cluster – Exploring Culture through Music and Language

Thursday, 8 February 2018, 11.55pm

Studentships will start on 17th September 2018.

This set of research projects aims to investigate a range of phenomena and practices, in two distinct cultural settings (initially Hull/UK and Tianjin/China) emerging in response to creative artefacts and experiences rooted in music and Chinese language(s).

In the first instance, the initial set of phenomena/practices (each to be examined in the two distinctive cultural settings) will explore research questions emerging from the Chinese Whispers choir. These will include the following three projects:

  1. Creation of Cross-Cultural Music-Language Artefacts;
  2.  Emotional and Experiential Responses to Choral Singing in a Second Language;
  3.  Reception of Cross-Cultural Music-Language Artefacts in Performance

Applicants should have a 2.1 or 1st-class undergraduate degree (or equivalent) in either Music and/or Chinese Studies or related discipline (e.g. Translation, Psychology, Applied Linguistics, Second Language Acquisition) and a Master’s degree (preferably with Distinction or equivalent) and/or relevant experience. Some knowledge of Chinese might be an advantage.
