Dear colleagues,

In the context of an ongoing project of restoring and enhancing the
historical map library at UCD (containing an important collection of
historical maps, mainly of Ireland and Britain, whose inventory is still
ongoing) I am seeking a (very good) student willing to start a PhD on a
project concerning the geographical and cartographic construction of
Ireland's image between the nineteenth and the twentieth century, and the
related international circulation of geographic and cartographic knowledge.
Mobility and archive skills are required, linguistic skills (such as
reading French) might be a plus.

There is the possibility to create a scholarship, but its amount and
duration shall be negotiated considering the final project to be agreed
with the candidate, her/his profile and specific requirements etc. If you
know any suitable candidate, please encourage her/him to get in touch with
me at the address below for an informal discussion.

Thanks to all and best wishes
