The University of Reading’s Henley Business School’s Centre for International Business History (CIBH), is offering a fully-funded PhD studentship (fees and maintenance) for a project to examine how several leading retailers have adapted to the new recessionary landscape of British high street retailing, including both examples of success and cases that ultimately ended in business failure. The project would partly draw on the University’s retail archives, including the corporate archives of Woolworths and W.H. Smith. The successful applicant would start their PhD in October 2021. For further information, please get in touch with Professor Peter Scott.
