MPhil/PhD with the Ruskin Centre
The Ruskin Library and Research Centre welcomes applications from students interested in any area of Ruskin-related research.
Click here to download our application handbook.
The MPhil/PhD course is available on a full-time or part-time basis. They are substantial research degrees for students who have demonstrated potential for independent study (You would normally be expected to hold an MA or equivalent). Students will be assessed entirely on the basis of a research dissertation.
A research degree with us is suitable for those wishing to explore the
multidisciplinary nature of the work of John Ruskin, with access to one
of the world’s greatest collections of Ruskin material, held in
‘Some Contemporary Responses to John Ruskin’s Death’
We enjoy links with the departments of English, History, Religious Studies, Sociology and Art. Other ideas could centre around or focus on many aspects of Nineteenth Century Studies, with relation to Ruskin such as:
Nineteenth Century Cultural Travel
Research with us would also be very suitable for those interested in library, museum and gallery studies, in relation to books, archives and picture collections.
We are very happy to discuss an idea or research proposal with you before
application stage. The above themes are only a guide. There are many interesting
routes of research that can be undertaken in relation to Ruskin and our
unique collection here at Lancaster.
For details please see the following link, or refer to our admissions page
Research training and support
There are several opportunities to gain valuable training in research methods whilst studying. As well as the weekly Ruskin Seminar, students will also have the opportunity to attend specialist seminars run by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
