Wilberforce Institute for the Study of Slavery and Exploitation: PhD Scholarships

Published Date:


The Wilberforce Institute for the Study of Slavery and Exploitation currently has three fully-funded PhD Scholarships on offer for 2019/20. The scholarships are part of a cluster looking at the exploitation of children over the long term. To date, there has been much interest in the third scholarship, which looks at contemporary refugee children, but much less interest in our other two historical projects: ‘White slave’ children, 1885-1940; and Home Children, 1920s-1960s.  Applications from relevant economic and social historians are encouraged.

Deadline for applications: 23 January 2019.

RHS Report: Race, Ethnicity & Equality

Published Date:


Royal Historical Society report highlights need for greater diversity in UK History.

A new report published today by the Royal Historical Society (RHS) highlights racial and ethnic inequalities in the teaching and practice of History in the UK. It draws attention to the underrepresentation of ‘Black and Minority Ethnic’ (BME) students and staff in university History programmes, the substantial levels of race-based bias and discrimination experienced by BME historians in UK universities, and the negative impact of narrow school and university curriculums on diversity and inclusion.
