The CRAACE (Continuity/Rupture: Art and Architecture in Central Europe 1918-1939) team is inviting applications from those interested in undertaking PhD research at the Department of Art History, Masaryk University, Brno.
Proposals are particularly encouraged from students with an interest in modernism from the first half of the 20th century, focusing on central and east-central Europe. This may be about topics in the history of art, design and architecture, art criticism and theory, as well as the historiography of art. Students will be able to write their research dissertation in English or Czech.
Successful candidates will receive a studentship of CZK 24,000 per month. They will also be eligible for additional support in meeting research costs.
The submission period for applications is: 1 August – 31 November 2020, for enrolment in Spring 2021.
Applicants will need to apply to Masaryk University through the usual application procedure, including a formal research proposal. The details can be found here: https://www.phil.muni.cz/en/studies/doctoral-degree-study-programme/how-to-apply
Successful applicants will be expected to register for the programme by 1 March 2021. Funding will be available until the end of 2023.
