Applications are invited for two fully funded three year studentships in
the following areas:

ESRC CASE studentship
 >From Homogeneity to Diversity: The Heritage of Mass Housing and Housing
Market Renewal working with John Pendlebury and Stuart Cameron in
collaboration with English Heritage.

The student will examine different discourses on the role of the built
environment in achieving social sustainability with reference to the
Government's Housing Market Renewal (Pathfinder) programme. A particular
focus will be how different types of intervention might impact on the
character of place and heritage values.

AHRC CASE studentship
 >Characterising the Post-Industrial City: a Case Study of Housing in
Newcastle upon Tyne working with John Pendlebury and Paola Michialino in
collaboration with Newcastle City Council

The project starts from the premise that the physical legacies of
industrial era housing stock are important in forming the character of
the landscapes of northern urban England. The student will address the
conceptual and methodological challenges of the characterisation of such
housing and apply to the case of Newcastle upon Tyne.
