Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide): Technology Mediated Abuse

Northumbria University

Faculty of Arts, Design and Social Sciences


Closing Date: 26 January 2024

Applications are invited for an inter-disciplinary project exploring technology mediated abuse. We welcome proposals for projects about any aspect of abuse and the relationship with technology which draw on more than one academic discipline and explore how an inter-disciplinary approach can enhance our understanding and the scope for real world solutions.

Proposals may include a focus on specific technologies (e,g financial), contemporary forms of abuse and related harms (e,g, image-based abuse, upskirting) or the role of technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in facilitating abuse. Recent digital developments (e.g., AI in banking) could also be explored alongside their role in preventing abuse.

This PhD will be hosted in the new Interdisciplinary Research Theme (IDRT) on Gendered Violence and Abuse (GVA) at Northumbria University, where there is an established community of scholars developing inter-disciplinary approaches to finding real-world solutions to GVA. As well as having a supervisory team with extensive research experience in domestic abuse, the PhD candidate will be welcomed into a thriving research community, receiving support from the wider IDRT. The supervisory team have extensive connections with partners and domestic abuse support services which will aid this project. 

The research may have an empirical, doctrinal,  comparative, or theoretical focus. Your proposal should clearly articulate your proposed approach and methodology. Your application should also set out the benefits of the inter-disciplinary approach you plan to adopt and your suitability to conduct an inter-disciplinary research project.
