Digital media is one of Coventry School of Art and Design’s (CSAD) main research themes and is also the focus of the University's cross-institutional Digital Media Grand Challenge and its new Centre for Disruptive Media (http://disruptivemedia.org.uk/).

Research in digital media at Coventry has three main areas of activity:

* Open Media - including Open Education, Open Access, Open Data and the university in the 21st century
* Creative Archiving and Digitisation
* Immersive, Mobile and Interactive Communications

All three areas adopt a critical Digital Humanities approach which involves exploring and experimenting with some of the humanities’ core concepts and values, both theoretically and practically. This includes new ideas of the author, subjectivity, originality, the book, the university, teaching and education, the archive, the law, copyright, piracy, the human and the posthuman.

Please note that only UK/EU fee payers are eligible to apply.
