This scholarship is open to domestic and international candidates interested in writing a PhD thesis that is relevant to the supervisor’s ARC funded Future Fellowship project “The Place of History in Science: Reassessing the Darwinian Revolution.” The project is a large-scale history of evolution that considers how historical representations of Charles Darwin and his revolutionary theory have influenced the shape and direction of modern evolutionary science itself.

  • The development of evolution in Victorian Britain
  • The relationship between evolutionary and historical modes of thought in the nineteenth century
  • The history of the Modern Synthesis
  • Popular narratives of evolution in the nineteenth and/or twentieth centuries
  • The relationship between religion and evolution
