Centre PhD Day 2014

Friday 26th September 2014 was our PhD Day, which lasted from 10am to 4pm and found most of the Centre's PhD students and staff in deep discussion about a range of significant issues. The day was organised and convened by Dr David Wright, and during the course of the day we were joined by a Senior Advisor from Warwick Career and Skills Service and also Zara Hooley, the administrator of the new Faculty of Arts Centre for Arts Doctoral Research Excellence. The first half of the day featured an in-depth discussion on 'methods', with Centre staff each accounting for the role of methods in their research, and their views on methodology in general. This was regularly puctuated by questions, reflections and issues from the students, many of whom whose research projects are in full flow. After an agreeable lunch, the second half of the day featured a protracted discussion of the challenges of starting an academic career -- from attending conferences to research blogging, from networking to publications. Our PhD students are working on a wide range of topics -- from culture and religion in North Korea, to digital media in Africa, the creative city movement and its impact in East Asia, the Caribbean creative industries, arts practice in Brazil, Cultural entrepreneurship in the UK, the art world in Latvia, and many more !
