It's alive! The search for form
Wednesday 29 September 2021, 2 - 4.30pm
The Practice Research Assembly is pleased to present our Autumn 2021 event: It’s alive! The search for form.
Practice research can look as unique as the researchers performing it. In this session we explore the different forms practice research can take and consider how traditional modes might be challenged and developed.
In an online presentation we will hear keynotes from Course Director and Lecturer in Cinematic Arts Dr Murat Akser, School of Art and Humanities, Ulster University, Professor of Experimental Architecture Dr Rachel Armstrong, School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape, Newcastle University, and Reader in Theatre, Performance and Sport and Deputy Dean (Interim) Dr Broderick Chow, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London, who will each be considering form within the context of their own practice research.
This session is intended for anyone interested in practice research across the disciplines supported by SGSAH, which include architecture, art, design, film, music, performing arts and writing as well as those who work through interdisciplinarity. Whether intending to apply for PhD study, a current PhD student, or an independent researcher, we invite everyone to join us for what will be an exciting event.
