PhD studentship @ kingston

Kingston University
PhD studentship
Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture

The Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture invites applications from outstanding postgraduate students for an AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award starting in March 2009. The award is for a three-year full-time studentship, and is equivalent in value to a standard AHRC Doctoral Award.

Partner organisation: The Geffrye Museum

Project: Approaches to documenting the homes of the London middle classes in the 21st Century

The aim of this project is to examine domestic interiors from the standpoint of the householder/occupants, exploring the meanings and values placed on domestic spaces. The research will seek to understand the social, cultural and aesthetic contexts, which influence choice and taste

It is anticipated that the project would suit well-qualified postgraduates from the arts, humanities or social sciences, who are looking to research the visual and material contexts of contemporary family life, domesticity and home-making. The project sits across the fields addressed by the Design Research Centre and the Modern Interiors Research Centre in the Faculty, and the Geffrye Museum. It will involve developing research methodologies for this subject area and gathering material such as recorded interviews of householders and images of their homes, which will form part of the Geffrye Museum's archive collections.

Applications deadline Wednesday 14 January 2009. Interviews will be held in February.
