Jesus College graduate scholarship, linked with GLGW

Jesus College, Oxford Graduate Scholarship, generously funded by members of Jesus College History alumni.

This scholarship is linked to the TORCH network Globalising and Localising the Great War (GLGW) project, History Faculty, University of Oxford, for research on the First World War.

• The Global-Imperial Dimension
• The Economics of War and Peace

• Global Cultural Representations of Conflict

When making the application it would be helpful to use the phrase ‘This proposed topic would fit with the Globalising and Localising the Great War Programme’ in the thesis proposal and to mention a member of the Programme as a prospective supervisor. We would wish particularly to encourage transnational and comparative projects, and would also welcome interdisciplinary projects.
