Bursary of £4,121 per annum to cover tuition fees for a Master of Research (MRes) degree at the University of Glasgow.

Applications are invited for an MRes studentship. The studentship is for one year and is for UK/EU students. It covers tuition fees of £4,121 for one year full-time or two years pro rata for a part-time course. The award commences in September 2016.

As a minimum, applicants should possess, or be a final year undergraduate likely to achieve a 1st or 2.1 Honours degree (or an overseas equivalent). Knowledge of a language in addition to English will be an advantage.

Your application should include a research proposal (approx. 2000 words), detailing the research you intend to conduct for your Masters’ dissertation. In addition to the research proposal, candidates must complete an online application, details of which are available here.

The studentship is funded by the School of Modern Languages and Cultures in connection with the Leverhulme Research Network 'Translating Feminism: Transfer, transgression, transformation'.

The network aims to study the ways in which transnationally and transculturally travelling texts have been locally translated and received new meaning through re-interpretation by feminist activists and translators. We are interested in the ways in which this process leads to shifts in meaning and to individual as well as social change.

Proposals around the following topics are particularly encouraged:

- Transnational and/or transcultural feminism
- Feminist translation
- Gender history
- Intercultural studies
- The history of the women's movement
- Gender and education
- Gender and writing
- Global feminist activism

The MRes in Arts is a flexible programme offering a combination of taught and research components. The MRes is assessed primarily by a dissertation on a topic of your choice, with additional assessed taught courses in research methods and specialised subjects directly related to your proposed dissertation topic. You can take between 60 and 90 credits of taught courses and a corresponding number of credits for the dissertation (between 90 and 120 credits). The length of your dissertation would be between 17,000 and 30,000 words. Your dissertation project will be supported by at least one academic supervisor and you will have access to the Graduate School's skills development workshops.

The successful applicant will also be required to assist in the programming of a seminar series 2016-2017 as part of the Leverhulme-funded project.

Your application should include:

- a detailed research proposal
- a CV with, if relevant, publications and language skills
- two reference letters

Applications should be addressed to Dr Maud Bracke and Dr Penny Morris.

Reference letters and applications should preferably be sent by email.

The deadline for applications is 30th June 2016.
