Seven UAL students have been awarded funding to commence postgraduate research study in September 2014 through the TECHNE London and South-East Doctoral Research Consortium and the London Doctoral Centre for Design (LDOC). TECHNE and LDOC offer Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) awards, which are highly competitive nationally. This means that the UAL has achieved double the number of AHRC studentships than were awarded in the previous AHRC system. Congratulations to the successful UAL applicants whose names and titles of their research are listed below.
TECHNE AHRC studentships (Techne is a term in philosophy which resembles epistēmē in the implication of knowledge of principles, although techne differs in that its intent is making or doing as opposed to disinterested understanding):
Jonathan Gilmurray,(LCC) Ecoacoustics: ecology and environmentalism in contemporary music and sound art
Asa Johannesson, (LCC) Looking Out, Looking In: Representation and the Viewer in Queer Photography
Louise Marshall, (LCC) Deep Listening: the strategic practices of female experimental composers post 1945
Jennifer Murray, (CCW) Manuscript fragments and the bindings from which they were removed – recording the evidence
LDOC AHRC studentships (London Design Oriented Consortium):
Berthe Fortin, (LCF) – Ritual Created Around the Crafting of Costume
Lucie Russell, (CSM) – WHAT I SEE I OWN? Can fashion/media body images via the process of drawing be re-appropriated to positive effect as part of the creation of a social innovation design tool that can be accessed or shared with groups to question negative body image/s and to build well-being and “body confidence”?
Julia Schaeper, (LCC) – From small change to big impact: How design approaches can help to transform healthcare
