The project research questions include:
• In what ways can archival material contribute to knowledge about environmental matters?
• How can arts and humanities research design and methodology redefine concepts of extractivism?
• What are the parameters for a successful artistic research model for working with archives?
• What materials contribute to definitions of colonial extractivism?
• How can artistic practice extend public awareness of debates on environmental crises?
The student is encouraged to pursue his/her/their original line of inquiry submitted as a doctoral proposal and application. The student will develop a
research proposal as part of the application process, in response to the brief (attached) and the project research questions. A range of methods would be
expected to include:
• Archival/Artistic research
• Design the artistic research model for working with The National Archives’ collections
• Devise public engagement and dissemination including an open access on-line resource of research findings, a programme of live events with a range of
public figures/critics as experts in colonialism, art history and environmental extraction
• Creation of artworks for public exhibition and integral to the PhD outcome
