Open for applications - Material Witness

Our hugely successful Material Witness programme for PhD students and early career researchers from CHASE institutions will be returning in 2016 and will run workshops throughout Spring and Summer.

The programme’s main aim is to provide training in techniques and methods for examining artefacts of various kinds, and at the same time to encourage researchers to share ideas about the relationships between materials and meaning across (and beyond) the spectrum of humanities disciplines.
