Live Art Development Agency PhD Scholarship
The University of Roehampton in partnership with LADA invites applications for a PhD scholarship on the theme Other Histories of Live Art: Resistant Subjects and Unwritten Acts, a TECHNE collaborative doctoral award starting in October 2019.
The successful research proposal will draw from, and focus on, processes of recording, documenting, narrating and discoursing on Live Art, with an emphasis on under-represented or marginalised subjects and hitherto unwritten histories. Candidates may seek to uncover, document, write, re-make or create new histories, as well as mount a self-reflexive interrogation of processes of historicisation. Strong proposals in either practice-as-research or theoretical methods will be considered.
The researcher will spend four months a year working at LADA, with desk-space and access to our extensive Study Room research facility. In addition to a full TECHNE scholarship and expenses, LADA will make available resources for project research and development.
The doctoral research will be supervised by LADA’s co-director Lois Keidan, and Professor Adrian Heathfield and Dr Eleanor Roberts of the Department of Drama, Theatre & Performance at Roehampton, where the candidate will be part of a vibrant and culturally engaged research community with a global reputation for innovation in performance and live art work.
