MMU have just announced a series of competitive AHRC funded PhD studentships, and one of them is a project that I’ve designed with Professor Steve Hawley from MIRIAD. Full details are online here.
Look for the project that is titled New Models of Digital and Performative Engagement
This project is with Cornerhouse, Manchester and coincides with its move to GMAC, the Greater Manchester Arts Centre. The candidate will examine new models of digital and performative engagement, to seek new areas that explore GMAC’s strengths in contemporary visual arts, the moving image, and performance. The programme of research will look at synergies between these artforms under a digital umbrella, and will examine, new models of engagement with artists’ film, participatory and cross artform potential, and digital collaborations, all within the context of Performance. The studentship will be engaged in a practice based research process, and that the successful candidate will have an understanding of new media, contemporary art and artists’ moving image.
I am particularly keen to see practitioners who have an advanced practice and want to augment this with an engagement with research. It’s a great opportunity. Apply!
