Funded PhD: Modern Craft & Modern Conflict

9 February 2022

Deadline: February 28, 2022

Ulster University’s Modern Craft & Modern Conflict PhD, focuses on the history and theory of craft’s intersections with particular conflicts.

This PhD project will;

  • consider craft and conflict not as fixed concepts but as contingent processes continually making, unmaking and reshaping identities that are often interconnected and interdependent in modern history.
  • research will draw upon a range of methodologies in order to generate new insights into the politics of making in modern society
  • research will explore the forgotten role of conflict in shaping the identity of modern craft.

Proposals should focus on the history and theory of craft’s intersections with particular conflicts and should ideally be located in disciplines such as art history, design history, archaeology, material culture studies or other comparable humanities subjects.

Please note, this PhD is thesis-based and practice-based proposals will not currently be considered. Learn more about the opportunity and key information regarding eligibility and funding here.
