AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award Opportunity

“Curating Art and Science: New Methods and Sites of Production and Display”

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship at the 
Department of Geography, Royal Holloway, University of London in 
partnership with The Arts Catalyst, London.

Supervisory team: Dr Harriet Hawkins (RHUL) Prof. Deborah Dixon 
(University of Glasgow) and Nicola Triscott and Dr Rob La Frenais (The 
Arts Catalyst)

Recent contemporary arts projects have directly engaged with, or taken 
as their subject, a range of sites, spaces, practices, ideas, and 
cultures of science and advanced technology. These trans-disciplinary 
art projects present highly varied contexts for research, production and 
exhibition, and working alongside The Arts Catalyst this studentship 
will investigate the practical, curatorial and production demands posed 
by these projects. Exploring and potentially participating in the 
commissioning and curation of arts projects that engage with science 
critically and experimentally, this studentship will ask research 
questions including:

How do art-science projects engage and extend the practices of curation?
What sorts of critical engagements with the spaces of scientific 
research and artistic production do these projects generate?
What lessons can be learnt about the challenges and possibilities these 
projects raise for cultural producers and curators?
How do art-science projects contribute to our understandings of the 
geographies of art and science?

The award is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and the 
studentship pays post-graduate fees at RHUL and an annual maintenance grant.


The deadline for applications is 22nd October 2012. The successful 
applicant will start in January 2013. Interviews will be held in early
