The Department of English Language and Literature is soliciting applications to Carleton University’s PhD in the Production of Literature. Selected candidates will be fully funded for up to five years. Fellowship recipients will have a background in digital humanities research (data visualization, graphics, interface design, and/or textual analysis), and some combination of skills in the areas of rhetorical theory and criticism, comparative literature, and/or critical media and textuality studies (ancient, modern or postmodern texts). Knowledge of more than one language is an asset. The fellowships will be affiliated with the Canada Research Chair in Rhetoric and Ethics, and will also include a Research Assistantship associated with the SSHRC-funded project, “Ancient Texts | New Media | Future Ethics.”
The funding package will consist of a combination of Research Assistant income, scholarly stipend, and Teaching Assistantship, in addition to other opportunities for graduate funding, both internal and external to Carleton University. The dollar figure will be finalized as part of a total funding package upon acceptance to the PhD in the Production of Literature. Other opportunities for international research collaboration, networking, conference participation, etc., are also being planned in the years to come.
