AHRC funded PhD studentship available

Apply by 24 June for studentship on 'Faith-based activism and climate change'

“Caring for the future through ancestral time: Faith-based activism and climate change”

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship funded by the AHRC. The studentship is on the theme of “Caring for the future through ancestral time: faith-based activism and climate change”, and will examine the role of Scotland’s eco-congregation movement in fostering environmental care and action.

The PhD will be based in the School of Social and Political Science, supervised by Dr Elizabeth Bomberg (Politics and International Relations) and Dr Franklin Ginn (Geography) at the University of Edinburgh. The studentship will be part of a broader project investigating the potential for ‘ancestral time’ to offer an alternative to both economistic and climate apocalyptic temporalities.
