James Smethurst
2021 Autumn Fellow

The Stuart Hall Fellowship brings scholars who help to mark and extend the legacy of Stuart Hall as a major intellectual of black cultural studies. The fellowship supports those who work on postcolonial and diasporic modernity; race, ethnicity and visual cultures; and the future of radical thought on the Left.

University of Manchester

The Stuart Hall PhD Scholarship is awarded to one student in the School of Social Sciences at the University of Manchester and covers fees and a stipend. The Scholarship support those working in an interdisciplinary area of study focused on one of Stuart Hall’s many areas of interest: cultural studies, race, ethnicity and inequalities.

2021 – 23 MA Scholars

The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust are a specialist mental health trust with a focus on training and education alongside a full range of mental health services and psychological therapies for children and their families, young people and adults. The Stuart Hall Foundation/Tavistock studentship is aimed at widening access to the M7 course and to the Child Psychotherapy clinical training at the Tavistock Centre, with applications invited from students who identify as Black, Asian or of Mixed Heritage. The bursary can contribute to the student’s fees up to Post Graduate Diploma qualification, and also to the cost of psychoanalytic psychotherapy fees in order to support a student should they wish subsequently to apply for a training in Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (M80).

PhD studentships support black British students studying for a PhD in the White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP) and cover UK tuition fees, a stipend and a research training support grant. The scholarships can be held in any of the 7 institutions of the WRDTP. The successful candidates will undertake research projects that focus on one of Stuart Hall’s many areas of interest: cultural studies, race, ethnicity and/or inequalities, and their work will align with one of the DTP’s seven thematic interdisciplinary pathways.

We wish them a warm welcome and all the very best with their research.
