EHU Nineteen Research Centre and the Wilkie Collins Journal are pleased to announce two new fellowships designed to enable early career researchers to undertake innovative new research in nineteenth-century topics.

The fellowships will provide up to £700 towards the cost of research expenses, as well as Visiting Researcher status with EHU Nineteen, access to Edge Hill University research resources (physical and digital), mentorship in research and careers from EHU Nineteen staff and a platform for an ECR researcher to promote their work and build their profile.

The Wilkie Collins Fellowship has been created by the Wilkie Collins Journal and EHU Nineteen to support new research into the life and works of Victorian novelist Wilkie Collins (1824-1899).

The EHU Nineteen Fellowship is intended to support innovative new research in any aspect of nineteenth-century studies. Applications for interdisciplinary projects are particularly welcomed.
