The Hockey Museum (THM) and The University of Wolverhampton are delighted to announce that the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) have approved funding for a collaborative PhD post to be jointly supervised by The University of Wolverhampton and THM. This award is part of the Sporting Heritage consortia initiative led by Sporting Heritage in partnership with the National Football Museum.

The title of the research project is An Oral History of England and Team GB Women’s International Hockey Representatives 1951-2016 and it aims to produce a collective biography of women who have represented England and Great Britain over the last 60 years. The work will specifically look at the women who played in the 41 Wembley international matches between 1951 and 1991, the Women’s Hockey World Cups between 1974 and 2014 and as part of Team GB at the Olympic Games from 1980 to 2016.

This is a unique opportunity to undertake a post-graduate project under the supervision of Professor Jean Williams, an acknowledged sports historian and heritage consultant now based at the University of Wolverhampton as well having full access to the expertise and extensive hockey archives held at The Hockey Museum, the world’s only hockey museum based in Woking. More details of the project can be found in an earlier THM news article promoting the award of the funding. Click here for that.

Anyone interested in applying should read the full advert on The University of Wolverhampton website here.

Closing date for applications is Friday 3 August 2018.
