Deveron Projects is offering an opportunity to undertake a fully funded PhD entitled The Politics of Small Places.
In collaboration with the Geddes Institute and Architecture Programme at the University of Dundee and the Anthropology Dept of University of Aberdeen, Deveron Projects is offering an opportunity to undertake a fully funded PhD entitled The Politics of Small Places.
The research would be based on Patrick Geddes’ thinking, who argued that engagement with our urban and rural environments was the basis for strong communities, lasting local identities, and thoughtful political action. The aim of The Politics of Small Places is to investigate the relevance of Geddes’ thought to contemporary rural environments. It aims to do this through the development of a program of practice‐based research projects with Deveron Projects.
We are looking for enthusiastic candidates from a range of disciplines (anthropology, art, sociology, architecture, etc) that can bring a passion of making the workings of Huntly, our rural market town visible. Candidates should be interested in the visual representation of information and the exhibition format as a means of exploration and debate. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone interested in working with a thriving community arts organisation.
The candidate selection is conditional on successful application to the University of Dundee PhD programme. More information can be found on the Scottish Graduate School website; where you can also download the guidance documents. Available to UK residents (some restrictions apply).
Interested candidates should contact either firstname.lastname@example.org or Lorens Holm at the University of Dundee as soon as possible to discuss informally. Please send a CV with your email.
Candidates going forward should be prepared to submit a 1000 word research proposal by Monday 10 December 2018.
