Welcome to STICK

Dear STICK Members

Please circulate the following opportunity to all who may be interested.


PHD STUDENTSHIP: THE ARCHAEOLOGY, HISTORY, AND HERITAGE OF SCOTLAND’S SEAWEED INDUSTRY, 17TH–20TH CENTURIES
 
This research project will transform our understanding of the role of industrial seaweed exploitation in early modern Scotland, by focusing on its technology and social impact, and the human experience of those involved. Drawing on archaeological and documentary sources, it will also consider its historical context and examine, for the first time, the rich seam of evidence in Gaelic and Scots about the commercial exploitation of seaweed and its impact on communities across Scotland. In many communities, there are strong memories of kelping, and it is regarded as a valuable and significant element of their way of life.

Deadline for applications: Wednesday 13 May 2020
