PhD by Prior Publication (Creative Practice) Scholarship at TU Dublin
Val Bogan Memorial PhD Scholarship
TU Dublin is offering two scholarships to new, part-time, doctoral candidates in the specific area of a PhD by Prior Publication through creative practice.
The scholarships, located in the Centre for Socially Engaged Practice-Based Research (SEPR; www.dit.ie/sepr), are designed for established media practitioners and visual artists, wanting to engage critically with their publicly disseminated outputs (4-5 in total) completed during the past decade.
The part-time 2-year PhD by Prior Publication through completed practice-based research consists of a thesis of 20-30,000 words, which should be comparable in terms of quality and rigour to that of the practice-based PhD, amounting to an original contribution to new knowledge.
This pathway affords established mid-career practitioners (filmmakers, screen and visual artists) – some of whom are employed in universities in and outside Ireland – the opportunity to reflect theoretically and methodologically on their body of creative practice generated during the past decade; the practice may include any one or a combination of the following artefacts: public exhibition and performance, curations, film screenings, exhibition catalogues, critical reviews, peer-reviewed papers, book chapters, monographs and books.
Each scholarship will take the form of an annual contribution covering the registration fee as follows:
- EU students: €3000 per annum
- Non-EU students: €6,000 per annum
The successful applicants will join a cohort of doctoral scholars in SEPR and will benefit from participating in an established practice-based environment, which has pioneered a 2-year PhD by Prior Publication pathway in Ireland, with an emphasis on socially engaged practice-based research.
Interested applicants should submit an expression of interest, accompanied by a CV no later than February 15 to Dr Alan Grossman (Director of SEPR).
