We generally offer feedback on your proposal and can meet with you to discuss the first draft if desired. We have many areas of expertise and specialism, and can support research in other areas as well. We also encourage practice-based PhDs.
How we help you
Our areas of expertise and specialism
Key areas of focus include:
- exhibition practice
- publication projects
- critical art writing
- experimental film and video
These are all underpinned by an emphasis on digital technologies as a format for the production, dispersion and interpretation of art.
Other specialisms include:
- artist films
- performance and subjectivity
- theories of labour
- radical art pedagogy.
While many students develop research proposals whose outcome will be a fully written thesis, we also support research that incorporates elements of art practice combined with critical reflection.
