PhD in the Production of Literature
Graduate Research Fellowships in
Digital Humanities / Digital Rhetoric

The Department of English Language and Literature is soliciting applications to Carleton University’s PhD in the Production of Literature.  Selected candidates will be fully funded for up to five years.  Fellowship recipients will have some combination of skills in the areas of rhetorical theory and criticism, text encoding and analysis, comparative literature (ancient, modern or postmodern), and/or critical media studies. Research experience in digital humanities / digital rhetoric will be an asset. The fellowships will be affiliated with the Canada Research Chair in Rhetoric and Ethics, and will also include a Research Assistantship associated with Carleton’s new Digital Rhetorics Laboratory.

The funding package will consist of a combination of Research Assistant income, scholarly stipend, and Teaching Assistantship, in addition to other opportunities for graduate funding, both internal and external to Carleton University.  The dollar figure will be finalized as part of a total funding package upon acceptance to the PhD in the Production of Literature.
