[ecrea] Fully Funded PhD Studentship - University of Nottingham & Ofcom

Thu Mar 03 13:53:54 GMT 2016

We are very pleased to announce the following fully-funded AHRC
Collaborative Doctoral Award to be hosted by
the University of Nottingham in collaboration with Ofcom:

*Longitudinal Analysis of Media Users and Digital Media*

The UK’s communications regulator Ofcom has generated a number of
longitudinal quantitative and qualitative datasets that are unique in
their coverage of shifting attitudes, uses and behaviours regarding
digital media culture over the past 10 years. This CDA will enhance
understanding of people's changing uses of and attitudes towards digital
media through the synthesis and analysis of Ofcom's datasets,
contextualised in relation to wider socio-cultural research. Ofcom’s
extensive datasets (consisting of seven qualitative and quantitative
datasets stretching back ten years) offer considerable scope for the
award holder to shape their own research project. Possible areas for
study could focus on, but are not restricted to: how UK audiences’ uses
of and attitudes towards digital media have changed since 2005; which
factors have shaped these changes in attitude and how might they be
shaped by the wider socio-cultural context in which they emerge; how
longitudinal analysis of change in the uses of and attitudes towards
digital media might inform media policy as well as broader theorisations
of the ways in which people negotiate technological, media or cultural
