The University of Bristol, The National Archives and The National Maritime Museum have made a studentship appointment under the AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Partnership scheme (CDP) from October 2016 for three years. This studentship provides an opportunity for a PhD student to research the news culture of the Second and Third Anglo-Dutch wars, and its relationship with verse satires published about the events of those wars, including the ‘Advice to a Painter’ satires written by Andrew Marvell and other poets. The project will have special access to collections of news and other topical materials connected to the wars at The National Archives and The National Maritime Museum. It will look at how verse satires interacted with these materials, and with the practices of news-reading which they reveal. The project will be co-supervised by Dr Edward Holberton (The University of Bristol), Dr Katy Mair (The National Archives) and Dr James Davey (The National Maritime Museum).
