The Project

Coventry School of Art and Design conducts world-leading research and is offering exciting PhD opportunities through a number of bursaries for students, to work with our professors and other researchers:

In addition to more mainstream approaches, research projects may be practice-based where appropriate. They will be pursued within or across our broad research areas of industrial/transport/3D design, performing arts, creative arts, and media and we are particularly interested in the following (with potential supervisor shown):

Digital Media (Professor Gary Hall)


Digital Media - specifically, the development of a critical Digital Humanities that explores how open access, open knowledge, open data, p2p networks, distributed media or ‘internet piracy’ can be used to  creatively disrupt core arts and humanities concepts such as the author, subjectivity, originality, the book, the archive, ownership, copyright and the (post)human.

The topic is part of a larger critical and creative investigation in the school into Disruptive Media and Open Media. As such, the successful candidate will be part of a team of researchers, Research Fellows and PhD students with many contacts in the UK and internationally through their work on projects such as Culture Machine, Open Humanities Press, Living Books About Life and Disrupting the Humanities.

Candidate specification:
A good honours degree, and ideally an MA, in an appropriate digital media-related subject.

Only UK/EU citizens may apply with the academic requirements as listed on:
