Charles Hasler PhD Studentship opportunity

MoDA's Head of Collections, Zoe Hendon, is pleased to announce a new PhD studentship opportunity:

Following the recent publication of our new book Charles Hasler Sends His Greetings, we're delighted that Middlesex University has agreed to fund a PhD studentship to support more research on this fascinating collection.





















The Hasler Collection has belonged to the Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture since the 1990s, but until now it has remained a largely untapped resource.  The Charles Hasler Sends His Greetings book (available via the Middlesex University online store) was intended to prompt further scholarly research into the collection, and it's great that this is happening already.

Prospective PhD candidates should take a look at the details on the Middlesex University website:

If you are thinking of applying you should make yourself aware of the scope and content of the Hasler collection by making an appointment to visit the museum in the first instance (please email moda@mdx.ac.uk).

You should then discuss your proposal with Professor Anne Massey, Director of Research in the School of Art & Design, Middlesex University (a.massey@mdx.ac.uk) before submitting your application.

The deadline for applications is 20th November and interviews will be held in December 2015.

Good luck!  we look forward to your applications.
