, école supérieure d’arts & médias de Caen/Cherbourg (ésam Caen/Cherbourg)
opened applications for their practice-led PhD RADIAN.
The three higher education schools of culture in Normandy—École nationale supérieure d’architecture de Normandie (ENSA Normandie) and ELIA members École supérieure d’art et design Le Havre-Rouen (ESADHaR), école supérieure d’arts & médias de Caen/Cherbourg (ésam Caen/Cherbourg)—members of the Normandy University Community of Universities and Institution, and the doctoral school "History, Memory, Heritage, Language" (ED HMPL 558) have created in 2018 RADIAN, a practice-led PhD in artistic research and creation open to the fields of art, design, architecture and creative writing.
The practice-led PhD RADIAN consists of an artistic work (or a group of artistic works) accompanied by a theoretical document of about one hundred pages. Proposing to conduct experimental research rooted in contemporary creative practices, RADIAN is intended for artists, architects, designers and/or authors with an established and recognised production in their field. RADIAN allows the deployment of research through practice and experimentation that leads to the production of plural artistic forms, coherent with the research problematic. Nourished by constant back-and-forth between theory and practice, between conceptualisation and experimentation, the research approach is deployed within and with the vocabularies, languages, methods, media and issues of contemporary creation. The PhD is directed by two researchers, one of whom holds a habilitation to direct research ("habilitation à diriger des recherches," the academic qualification requested in France in order to supervise PhD students), the other from one of the three cultural schools.
Three PhD students, each receiving an annual grant of 10,000 EUR (financed by the Normandy Region), are recruited each year for a period of three years.
The application deadline is 29 April 2020
, 12 pm.
