Fully funded PhD Scholarship: ‘Women in post-war landscape architecture’

This fully funded collaborative doctoral award jointly supervised by Manchester School of Architecture (MSA) and Historic England (HE) will investigate and understand the role of female landscape architects in Britain in the second half of the 20th century. This project will address the gap in our understanding and appreciation of women’s contribution to the foundation and development of landscape architecture and its professional institutions, and will uncover their role in the design, theory and delivery of landscape architectural projects in the reconstruction after WW2. During the project the candidate will work closely with researchers working on the AHRC funded research network ‘The Landscapes of Post-War Infrastructure: Culture, Amenity, Heritage and Industry’ and will also have the opportunity to undertake a a short-term non-paid placement at Historic England to gain beneficial work experience in the Heritage sector.
