We are a television distribution company looking for a researcher for one of our most recent shows. The television show is a reality format that picks a moment in time - an iconic, representative year in the history of a city - where fourteen contestants from the present world will live, breath and compete to learn the ways of the past by cooking, working and in general, surviving in an environment which replicates every aspect of the time: from making cutlery, baskets and barrels, to glass blowing or even paving roads!

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship at the Wilberforce Institute for the study of Slavery and Emancipation (WISE), University of Hull. This is one of three studentships linked to a joint collaborative research project funded by the AHRC entitled 'The Antislavery Usable Past', the other studentships being based at Queen's University Belfast (QUB) and the University of Nottingham. The aim of the project is to use the study of past anti-slavery strategies to inform today's movement against global slavery and human trafficking.
The antislavery movement is at a crossroads between the past and present.

Applications from the UK and European Union are invited to apply to undertake a PhD within the School of Law at Queen's University, Belfast, under the direction of Professor Jean Allain.
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research fellow to be based in the Department of American and Canadian Studies. The successful applicant will join a collaborative academic project, funded by the AHRC under its 'Care for the Future' theme and entitled 'The Antislavery Usable Past'. It will unearth the details of past antislavery strategies (including 18th/19th-century American and British) and translate their lessons and legacies for the movement against contemporary global slavery and human trafficking.
