About Theories of Knowledge

The Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities is pleased to announce the pilot of our first nationwide course for doctoral researchers in all disciplines of the Arts & Humanities.

Theories of Knowledge will examine the ways in which philosophers and critical theorists have influenced, and continue to animate, how we understand knowledge production within the Arts & Humanities. Students on the course will survey several key themes in critical theory, focusing on how each topic of inquiry has changed or challenged our conceptions of what it means to know something in the Arts & Humanities.

Delivered collaboratively by leading academic researchers in Scotland, weekly lectures will be live-streamed across the country and will be followed by an open discussion session. Whether you attend in person or virtually, you’ll be encouraged to share your ideas on how the theoretical frameworks we discuss relate to your own research methods and to your public and professional roles as a researcher.

Theories of Knowledge is designed to inspire reflection and to build community amongst academic researchers and teachers working across the disciplines as we consider together what it means to create public knowledge in the contemporary Arts & Humanities.

Sessions will be held on Thursday evenings, from 17:15 to 19:00, and will include one hour of lecture followed by a 45 minute discussion period. Theories of Knowledge is free of charge to all PhD students attending any SGSAH member Higher Education Institution within Arts & Humanities.
