Collaborative Doctoral Award offered by Kingston University and the Crafts Council
Applications are open for a Collaborative Doctoral Award starting in September 2018, offered by Kingston University in collaboration with the Crafts Council and supported by LDOC. The focus is ‘Diversity in Craft:’ the project will investigate the role in craft discourse and production of interactions between different cultural practices, expanding knowledge and generating evidence to inform policy and practice to better champion and develop diverse craft practices among makers from migrant and diasporic communities.
Applications are invited for full-time and part-time students. The studentship includes an AHRC stipend for three years or pro rata for six years part-time, plus fees at home/EU rates. AHRC Maintenance rates for 2018-19 are yet to be announced – the doctoral stipend for 2017-18 was £16,553 (three years full-time or part-time equivalent for six years); levels are likely to rise slightly for 2018-19. As a LDOC student, the person selected will have full access to the LDOC specialist Design Research Training and Knowledge Exchange Programme. Interviews will be held on Thursday 18th January 2018.
