Digital Arts (offered by the Huston School of Film & Digital Media)

Applications are invited in the areas of:

(i) Galway and the international-West coast culture in the digital age


(ii) Digital media practice-based research.

Proposals may examine questions such as: how arts practices on the west coast of
Ireland act as a contact zone between the local and the international? Ideas and
histories of the region can be seen in relation to wider contexts as people move in
and out of the rhetorics of authenticity. In what way do specific digital arts practices
offer forms of resistance to the impositions of a global image system? How can
research and experimentation explore the intersection between artistic creativity
and technological innovation? What forms can writing take in the digital age? How
has the specificity of the digital changed the form, structure and function of narrative?
Although there would be emphasis on practice-based doctorates in both these areas
we will continue to be open to traditional academic formats.
