Opportunity: PhD studentship

11th June 2020

Following a successful joint proposal to the Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities between the University of Glasgow and Creative Carbon Scotland, we are delighted to invite applications for a fully funded PhD studentship.

The interdisciplinary project – “Assessing arts-based interventions for sustainable practice” – will observe a range of creative interventions, critically reflect upon them as both artistic creations and mechanisms for change within an Energy and Environmental Humanities framework, and develop a portable qualitative framework for the design and assessment of arts-based interventions.

The successful candidate will spend time with Creative Carbon Scotland assessing what makes arts-based interventions effective in realising sustainable cultural and social changes at the local, institutional and regional level.

University of Glasgow’s Dr Tom Bartlett and Dr Rhys Williams from the School of Critical Studies will supervise this AHRC Collaborative Doctoral studentship, due to commence in Autumn 2020.

Deadline for applications is Friday 3rd July 2020.
