MA Scholarships in British Romanticism at the University of Otago

Applications are now being accepted for two Marsden-funded MA scholarships on the topic of British Romanticism. Candidates will write a thesis under the supervision of Dr Thomas McLean at the University of Otago. Scholarships are for one year, include fees and thesis costs up to NZ$6750 for domestic students (New Zealand and Australian), and carry a stipend of NZ$16,000.

Dr McLean’s Marsden Fund project focuses on the Porter family: historical novelists Jane and Anna Maria Porter and their brother the artist and traveller Sir Robert Ker Porter. He especially welcomes projects that focus on the Porters’ writings or associated topics: the historical novel; Romantic-era travel in Russia, Persia, or South America; the literary family as global network.

Interested students should write to Dr McLean:
with a brief introduction and a possible topic.
