 3. PhD Studentship: The History and Future of Data Storage and Data Use

 Deadline: 18th May 2018

This is a call for applications for a three year fully funded Leverhulme PhD studentship in the Sociology Department at Lancaster University. The PhD is part of the Material Social Futures PhD Programme.

 

The PhD investigates the past, present and future of data storage and data use to understand some of the social and environmental implications of innovations in data storage technologies and materials. The PhD will focus on selected cases to explore different configurations of technology, data and storage and raise questions of what ‘data’ is, and why and how it is stored, accessed and even forgotten. The appointed candidate will decide the focus of the PhD in line with their specific interests and enthusiasms, and in discussion with the supervisors. For example, the PhD might explore data storage and use in everyday life in relation to music, reading, family photographs or managing a household – exploring how such practices have transformed as configurations of technology, data and storage have changed. Likewise, it would be possible to focus on a specific sector, such as the university, heritage or health sectors, to explore transformations of data storage and use therein. The point though, is to explore the relationships between different configurations of data storage materials, technologies and use, and to consider their social and environmental implications: from filing cabinets and floppy discs historically, through to cloud computing today, and in imagined futures of quantum data storage.

 

The PhD project will draw on independent research supplemented by collaborations with PhDs in nanotechnology and data storage that will allow the creative exploration of different configurations of data storage materials (including nanotechnology) and data use. It will enable analysis of anticipated and less certain or predictable social and environmental consequences of these diverse configurations of use and material technology. Ultimately these potentially exciting conceptual and empirical understandings will be brought together to shed new light on the consequences of such advancements in material science.

 

The Leverhulme centre for Material Social Futures

 

Lancaster University’s Leverhulme Doctoral Training Centre in Material Social Futures is a major new strategic collaborative partnership between two of the university’s recently formed research Institutes – the Institute for Social Futures and the Material Science Institute. Based in the Sociology Department you will be part of a growing team of PhDs who will examine how to create more sustainable and socially beneficial futures, and who will work to bring together concepts and approaches from science and technology studies, material culture and the sociology of everyday practice with processes of materials discovery. In short, the goal of PhDs in Material Social Futures at Lancaster University will be to help produce futures that people want and the world needs.

 

Lancaster University is one of the top 10 universities in the UK. The Sociology Department was ranked 1st in the UK for research intensity in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), recognizing its inclusive approach and world-leading research. The project will also benefit from access to the vibrant research community of Lancaster’s Institute for Social Futures 

 

Supervisors

 The PhD will be supervised by Dr Nicola Spurling and Prof.  Richard Harper
