PhD and MPhil Applications: Medieval and Early Modern Studies at the Australian Catholic University

The Medieval and Early Modern Studies (MEMS) Program of the Institute for Religion and Critical Inquiry (IRCI) welcomes applications from highly motivated students to study toward a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) or Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). We seek applicants who wish to develop research projects in medieval and early modern history in areas such as social, cultural, religious, and gender history.

We are particularly interested in hearing from prospective PhD students interested in developing projects aligned with our large-scale collaborative project, ‘Religious Mobilities: Medieval and Early Modern Europe and the World’. Multiple research scholarships are available to support PhD students in this project.

The IRCI’s MEMS program is the largest medieval and modern program in Australia, and a dynamic, supportive, internationally-engaged research community. Students are supported by reading groups, seminars, professional development opportunities, events across ACU’s cognate faculties and institutes, and international networking opportunities.

For further information, please contact the MEMS Program Director, Professor Megan Cassidy-Welch.
