AHRC Grant

The Universities of Brighton and Chichester are working together on an AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council) which is funded by the Block Grant partnership to enhance PhD research across the Arts and Humanities.

Applications  were invited for one doctoral award and one professional masters awards to commence 1 October 2013. These studentships are part of the Consortium's Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Block Grant Partnership (Capacity Building) secured in 2011.

We invited applications from across the spectrum of Dance-based research which engages in interdisciplinary dialogues. This incorporates a number of areas in which specialised supervision is available (although we consider other areas providing there is supervisory capacity):We invited applications from across the spectrum of Dance-based research which engages in interdisciplinary dialogues. This incorporates a number of areas in which specialised supervision is available (although we consider other areas providing there is supervisory capacity):

  • dance and moving image (Screendance)
  • dance and somatics
  • dance history and analysis
  • dance and cultural memory
  • dance and inter-disciplinary arts practices
  • practice as research in dance
  • choreographic research that intersects with other fields of research

Specialist research training modules will be made available through each university’s masters provision including the University of Brighton’s MRes in Arts and Cultural Research which will provide the core research methodology training. In addition, the University of Chichester has an extensive programme of both generic training as well as discipline-based training in practice as research.

Successful candidates were able to take advantage of the availability of the research culture in each of the collaborating institutions.

The studentship is three years full-time in duration (five years part-time).
