From Climate Cultures: Paul Michael Henry, artist and artistic director of UNFIX, writes about UNFIX 2019 in Glasgow (29-31 March).

“… People keep mis-labelling it ‘Unfixed’ or ‘The Unfix’ but it’s UNFIX: a command form. A verb and activity.

A loosening, disburdening, freeing-up. Anti-fatalistic, with the assumption that it doesn’t have to be like this. I experience climate change as a terrible affirmation: we cannot treat each other, ourselves and our surroundings this way. We can’t walk around with these egos functioning the way they do, and live.”

PhD Studentships in Theatre Studies at the University of Glasgow, 2016-17

November 9, 2015

Prof Carl Lavery asked us to circulate this.  If you have an interest in ecological issues and performance, this is a sympathetic place to study.

Theatre Studies at the University of Glasgow is pleased to invite applications for PhD studentships, through its involvement in the AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership Scotland (DTP). We particularly welcome research proposals which relate to our research strengths in the following areas: ecology, environment and heritage, history and historiography, dramaturgy and playwrighting, adaptation, intermediality and digital arts, Scottish theatre, practice-based research, queer and gender theory, Shakespeare and performance, intercultural performance, physical theatre and actor training, live art, curation and museology, autobiography, site-based performance, contemporary German and French theatre, temporalities and geochronology, theatre and the elements, politics and memory.

The DTP Scotland is run by the Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities (http://www.sgsah.ac.uk) which offers innovative training and skills development opportunities for its funded students (e.g. Internships, Artist-in-Residency schemes, Summer School, second-language courses). This national provision complements the excellent doctoral training offered by the University of Glasgow.

Studentships are available to applicants living in the UK and the European Union. Applications for interdisciplinary projects are also very welcome. For full details, please visit http://www.sgsah.ac.uk

In addition, the College of Arts will offer a number of scholarships for PhD study in 2016. These scholarships are open to UK/EU and International applicants.

The deadline for all scholarship applications is Wednesday, 6 January 2016. To be considered for an award, candidates must have applied to study at the University of Glasgow and have provided two academic references through the university’s application system.
