We welcome applications from prospective PhD students wishing to work on a travel writing project under the guidance of a supervision team led by Professor Tim Youngs. There is no restriction as to historical or geographical focus or critical approach, but proposals relating to any of the following areas may be especially welcome: North America; Italy; India; travel writing and modes of transport; the poetry of travel; modernism and travel; postcolonialism and travel; creative-critical work; radical travel writing; diasporic travel narratives; travel writing and the Midlands. We also welcome single-author studies, particularly of unjustly neglected figures. The successful applicant will be expected to support CTWS activities.
