PhD Studentship at Kent Deadline extended till 25 May 2006

Using the material culture of the Ovambo to explore cultural memory
among a displaced population

The Powell-Cotton Ovambo collection was made in southern Angola in
the 1930s. Many people asserting descent from that population now
live in northern Namibia. This project will use the Powell-Cotton
collection as the basis for the ethnographic exploration of the
maintenance of cultural identity and social memory among Ovambo in
northern Namibia. A further aspect of the research will be to explore
ways in which collections of material culture can be documented and
made accessible to those with connections to the collection.

Applicants must have completed a first or upper second class honours
degree or its equivalent, and/or a Masters degree, in Anthropology or
Museology by the starting date. No prior experience of research in
Africa is necessary.

Starting date: 1st October 2006

To be eligible for funding, you must also fulfil ESRC requirements:
EU citizens will be eligible for a full award as long as they have
been resident in the UK for the previous three years. An EU Citizen
who does not fulfil the residency condition will be eligible for a
fees only award.

Applications (including the receipt of references) must be received
by 25 May 2006; interviews will be held week beginning 26 June 2006
(provisionally 26 June).
