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
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
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
