UCA Research Student Conference 2012

Process. Perception. Phenomena. Research Student Conference and Exhibition 

University for the Creative Arts – Canterbury Campus

Conference date: 14 March 2012

Exhibition date: 14 – 23 March 2012

We would like to invite responses to the theme: Process. Perception. Phenomena. Consideration may be given to one or all of these terms. What are the developmental relations between phases of research and the forms they take?

Students have an opportunity to show their work to promote critical reflection on current practice-led research in visual arts and design. By bringing together the varied methodological approaches, practices and theoretical positions that characterise research at the University for the Creative Arts, the conference aims to be a space to engage with peers about the nature of new research.

A limited number of CREST Bursaries of up to £100 supporting travel and expenses are available to research students at CREST Member institutions whose papers are accepted for the Conference (see below). Contact the Research Network Coordinator for further details.
