It provides funding for 10 PhDs at universities in Spain, Britain, Italy,France, and Israel, and two postdoctoral positions, one based at a Dutch publisher (Brill), one at a Spanish TV/film company (Lopez‐Li). During their studies, the PhD students will all have secondments to the publisher and the film company, the post‐docs will come to the Universities to run sessions on print and media diffusion of research. Further training workshops are provided, on academic and other skills, as well as a larger‐scale ‘MediaSchool for Historians’.
