Scottish Graduate School for Arts Fully-funded PhD Scholarships in Digital Cultural Heritage and the Oceans 2020 for Developing Countries
The School of Simulation and Visualisation at the Glasgow School of Art is offering one full-time, fully-funded, three-year PhD scholarship (fees and stipend) investigating the role of digital cultural heritage and/or creative responses in our emotional engagement with the world’s oceans.
Application Deadline: 26th June 2020.
About the Award: Applications are invited for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Digital Cultural Heritage and the Oceans from candidates from Namibia, South Africa, Ghana, Kenya and South Pacific island nations (particularly Fiji and Solomon Islands) on the DAC List of OAD Recipients (see www.oecd.org ) who wish to pursue a full-time PhD in the School of Simulation and Visualisation (SimVis) of the Glasgow School of Art. This provides an opportunity for post-graduate students and/or professional practitioners with substantial creative, cultural heritage and/or digital experience to undertake research within a vibrant and eclectic academic environment.
Specifically, this research will focus on the ways in which such activity can benefit communities dependent on the oceans and how expressions of these relationships can be shared broadly to facilitate more equitable and sustainable governance of the ocean environment.
