Wed Jul 17 20:52:04 GMT 2019

*>>>>Funded Interdisciplinary PhD in Cities, Cinematics and Technologies<<<*

The School of Design at the University of Greenwich is announcing a fully funded PhD scholarship for an interdisciplinary research project exploring the interplay between urban space, visual media and digital technologies on a variety of different levels.

The PhD project will review mechanisms by which new technologies can change our understanding and experience of cities, as well as the ways in which processes of urbanisation shape increasing use of digital screens, based on the idea of touch, haptic and interactions. The PhD will explore the use of screen media as a methodology to construct narratives in and about the cities, as well as tracing the emergence of such narratives from the earlier technologies in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The PhD project will be open to a range of disciplines, across art, architecture, design and social sciences, as well as to wide geographical contexts. The project may be pursued through either research or practice-based investigations.

Questions/Areas that can be explored within this project include, but are not limited to:

  * Cities, screens and non-spaces
  * Digital utopias
  * Creative practice and the city
  * Urban walking on/off/with screen
  * Data, AI, automation and cities

The supervisory team includes Prof Steve Kennedy (Head of School of Design), Dr Maria Korolkova (Academic Portfolio Lead Media), and Dr Ed Wall (Academic Portfolio Lead Landscape and Urbanism), combining the expertise from Media and Landscape portfolios.**

The project will also provide a catalyst from which to establish a new research centre, in which the PhD candidate will be expected to take the a major role.
