PhD Scholarship at the University of Roehampton

PhD Scholarship at the University of Roehampton with LADA and Dr Simon Bayly.

LADA and the Department of Drama, Theatre and Performance at the University of Roehampton are currently inviting applications for a PhD scholarship.

Applications are invited across the range of the Department’s interests in Live Art research and practice, and we are particularly interested in projects that address any of the following areas: new and unconventional approaches to artists’ archives; hidden, lost and unwritten histories of performance in the UK and elsewhere, especially from the 1970s and 1980s; innovative approaches to the collecting of diverse, disruptive and difficult art practices leading to new understandings of the cultural value of performance.

Deadline: 5 May 2015.

Funding is available for UK/EU and International students at Home/EU rates (tuition fee waiver at £4,052 and stipend at £16,057 for 2015/16) for three years full-time study (or part time equivalent for five years).

Students will benefit from being part of their Departmental research communities and the Graduate School, which sits at the heart of our supportive doctoral community. All doctoral students further benefit from a range of high-quality training opportunities that foster development both within the academy and beyond.

See University of Roehampton website for more information on how to apply.
