PhD Studentship on the Making of Mixed Ethnicities, 1945-2011

This +3 ESRC PhD Studentship in History or Sociology is attached to the new ESRC Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE) at the University of Manchester. The studentship-holder will explore the demographic dynamics, political debates and social experiences that have marked ethnically mixed identities in post-war Britain. The focus will be on how mixed families, ethnic minority community organizations and state agencies have claimed, classified or instrumentalised identities based on race, religion or dual origin. Charting how these logics and practices of identification have changed within particular historical contexts, the doctorate will examine the impact of race, gender and class in debates around miscegenation and second generation identity.
