Centre for Place Writing

PhD Study in Place Writing

Over the past few years, Manchester Met has become a major centre for students wishing to pursue doctoral research on the relationship between writing and place.

Here, in the Department of English, we provide doctoral supervision on a range of place-related creative, critical, and creative-critical projects. We also encourage our PhD students to play a full part in the increasingly dynamic postgraduate research culture within both the Department and the wider Faculty of Arts and Humanities.

For further information about our particular interests, then please take a look at our staff profiles.

If you would like to undertake PhD study with us, it is possible to apply for funding through the Arts and Humanities Research Council consortium for the North West. Details can be found on the North West Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership website.

For place-related enquiries, please contact Dr David Cooper. For general PhD application enquiries, please contact Dr Andrew Moor in the Department of English.
