The RANE research is please to annouce that University College Falmouth are supporting a funded PhD Studentship within the Arts & Environment research area starting in October 2010. Research proposals are invited that address:
“A critical engagement through arts practice with issues of environmental change”
Director of Studies: Dr Daro Montag Daro.Montag@falmouth.ac.uk
The RANE research group uses the practical, theoretical and imaginative tools offered by arts practice to grapple with questions of environmental change. Members of the group have recently been working on the cultural response to climate change alongside Cape Farewell in London and Peru.
We are now seeking project proposals that utilise a critical art practice to address the impacts of change, strategies for mitigation and the possibilities for adaptation. Project proposals could include a critical engagement with the air, soil, water, weather systems, energy systems or social systems or other similar subject. They are likely to incorporate ecological aesthetics, process thinking or dialogic models of practice. Although not essential, it is possible that proposals could specifically consider the impacts of environmental change upon Cornwall and the region.
The supervisory team will be led by Dr Daro Montag and include an external researcher with relevant expertise in environmental change.
