»Over the past two decades there has been a considerable expansion of interest in evening and night-time economies. This growing body of work has emerged out of a number of disciplines, in particular criminology, sociology, geography, cultural studies and town planning. While much of the scholarship on the night-time economy has focused on young consumers in town and city centres, the dynamics of race and cultural difference have been relatively under-researched. This project provides an important opportunity for a qualitative focus on race and ethnicity in the night-time economy of London, a complex and diverse global city.«
The application should include a research proposal of 2,500‐3,000 words. Closing date for applications is 5pm on 25 February 2016.
