AHRC Collaborative PhD Studentship: Curating electronic arts  
festivals: site responsive strategies
Fine Art Department, Newcastle University in collaboration with AV  
Festival

This is an exciting opportunity to undertake PhD research into the  
curatorial strategies of electronic arts festivals, with an emphasis  
on their relationship to site.

Using AV Festival as a case study, this project will analyse the  
curatorial strategies of electronic arts festivals, with a view to  
developing new modes of curatorial practice. It will focus on the  
issues of curating across multiple geographical areas, working  
critically with technology, and the challenges of commissioning new  
site-specific work. It may also explore the role of festivals in  
supporting artistic practice, publishing, archiving, critical debate  
and open culture.

The studentship is tenable for up to 3 years (full-time) or up to 5  
years (part-time). A full or partial award is available. A full award  
covers fees only. If you are a part time student, support is pro rata.  
All applicants should comply with AHRC residency critieria. The  
studentship is available from 26th September 2011.
