Research School: Workshops and Symposia

The Research School's Workshops and Symposia during 2018

Monday-Tuesday 16-17 April 
Symposium - Art and Violence

This semester’s Doctoral Symposium at the Faculty of Fine Applied, and Performing Arts, is organized in collaboration with the Department of Law at the University of Gothenburg. The overarching theme is ‘Violence’. We are specifically asking how we can know what can’t be known. How can we learn of the violence that shapes our lives at this moment in history? And conversely, what sort of violence, or perhaps love, is required to find out what needs to be found out in order to make other worlds possible? In this respect, the two days of the Symposium are an exploration of methodologies, from the vantage point of sites of epistemological violences.

The first day will focus on citizenship and fiction, the second day more specifically on violence and its remains. We encourage participants to join both days, as we are expecting an ongoing conversation that stretches across the symposium.

Among the invited guests are Saidiya V. Hartman and M. NourbeSe Philip, as well as Mahmoud Keshavarz

Publicerat – Fotoboken i Sverige

Publicerat är den första utställningen som belyser fotoboken i Sverige. Syftet är att presentera fotobokens historia i Sverige och de många former som den publicerade fotografin kan ta, men den är samtidigt en presentation om hur den fotografiska bilden skildrar och formar människan och samhället. Utställningen är del av det pågående forskningsprojektet Photography in Print & Circulation, som är ett samarbete mellan Hasselbladstiftelsen och Akademin Valand. Projektet avslutas hösten 2018 med en omfattande publikation om fotoboken i Sverige. Curator: Niclas Östlind, Akademin Valand i samarbete med Elsa Modin och Louise Wolthers, Hasselbladstiftelsen. Som del av utställningen ordnas en serie konstnärssamtal, boksläpp och intervjuer med ledande fotografer, formgivare, samlare och förlag. Läs mer HÄR


Digital epistemologi - Lecture with Jonas Ingvarsson

Digital epistemologi: Om digitaliseringen som tankeform och dess förhållande till tidigmodern estetik

The lecure will be held in Swedish

Föreläsningen tar sin utgångspunkt i det Jonas Ingvarsson kallar digital epistemologi. Grundtanken är att de digitala verktyg och uttryck vi omger oss med innebär ett radikalt skifte i hur vi uppfattar och hanterar den information vår omgivning består av. Konsekvensen av detta borde vara att vi måste finna nya sätt att kommunicera vår kunskap om omvärlden, såväl den samtida som den historiska.

Jonas Ingvarsson är docent i litteraturvetenskap vid Göteborgs univeristet. Han undervisar och forskar inom områden som mediahistoria, posthumanism och redaktionell praktik. För närvarande håller han på att sammanställa en volym med essäer om olika aspekter av digital epistemologi, detta som ett led i det snart avslutade forskningsprojektet Representationer och omkonfigureringar av det digitala i svensk litteratur och konst 1950-2010 (RepRecDigit - tillsammans med Cecilia Lindhé, Jesper Olsson och Jakob Lien), vilket finansierats av Vetenskapsrådet.

Venue: Stora Hörsalen, HDK, Kristinelundsgatan 6-8

The event invite researchers, at whatever stage of their research, to meet and participate in two-way discussions. Above all, CA²RE wishes to offer a lively, diverse and inclusive environment that brings together young researchers within a multi-disciplinary setting. See program and how to sign in HERE

Exploring Formats, Enriching Practice

University of Music and Performing Arts Graz

A Research Event
October 12-13, 2018
MUMUTH, Lichtenfelsgasse 14, 8010 Graz / Austria

 

contact: andreas.pirchner@kug.ac.at

Exploring Formats, Enriching Practice brings together artists and theoreticians to explore forms in which to share developments emerging from art practices. The event will address the following questions: Which forms of sharing are relevant and adequate for artistic practice? Which formats can we think of that afford access and engagement while not compromising what is artistically important? What are the alternatives to a knowledge production driven and constrained by economic valorisation? The participants of the event will present and discuss examples of sharing engaged in artistic research. The event seeks to highlight possibilities of transposing rather than transferring what is gained from one context to another.


Call for applications: the 4th Nida Doctoral School course "Naked on the Beach. On the Exposition of Artistic Research"

26 August – 2 September 2018

For DA and PhD students in visual and performing arts, design, architecture, humanities and social sciences

Application deadline: 15 March 2018

Working alongside questions that are pertinent to individual research, a host of expositional concerns for PhD and DA researchers will be discussed and performed during the course. In this way, participants will collectively tackle issues such as: When you install your art/research/artistic research into a space, does it (always and necessarily) become an exhibition? When you lay-out your work into a publication, does it become a catalogue, a reflection, or something else? Can artistic research be shared, communicated, shown, narrated, performed? What is the most suitable way to present your artistic research so it speaks to artistic and academic audiences? How to be proficient in publishing  by making your work relevant to academic readers, while, at the same time, ensuring it is pertinent to art professionals and wider audiences? How can we make a hybrid exposition or a hybrid paper which will have both academic and artistic qualities? How to communicate artistic practise, while avoiding compromises and pressures of having to conform to the usual research presentation?

Big research grant to HDK / Business & Design

Anna Rylander Eklund, lektor vid HDK har beviljats drygt 2,6 miljoner kronor till sitt forskningsprojekt "Att organisera design och designa organisationer för förändring". Det är det fjärde största anslaget som Torsten Söderbergs stiftelse beviljade 2017 och det största av de som gick till forskare vid Göteborgs universitet.

Torsten Söderbergs Stiftelse främjar vetenskaplig forskning inom ekonomi, medicin och rättsvetenskap, men öven inom kategorin "övrigt". I december 2017 beslutade stiftelsen om fördelningen av sammanlagt 55,5 miljoner kronor, varav drygt 9,2 gick till forskare och forskningsprojekt vid Göteborgs universitet, som därmed blev en av stiftelsens största anslagsmottagare.


Research Project Grants – Vetenskapsrådet (VR)

The purpose of the research project grant is to give researchers the freedom to formulate by themselves the research concept, method and implementation, and to solve a specific research task within a limited period of time. The Swedish Research Council rewards research of the highest scientific quality in national competition.


FORMAS' annual open call 2018

In the annual open call Formas welcomes applications within its three areas of responsibility - Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning. The purpose of the call is to enable researchers to address self-identified research needs. The annual open call will open on March 1 and close on April 12, 2018.

Formas annual open call is divided into three sub-calls

  • Research and development projects
  • Research and development projects for future research leaders
  • Mobility grants

The latter two sub-calls are targeted to, and can only by apply by, researchers early in their careers. The purpose of the mobility starting grant is to encourage researchers who have recently been awarded their doctoral degrees to visit new research environments.

Knowing in Performing - Artistic Research as a Distinct Practice and Discourse in the Field of Performing Arts

4 April 2018, 9.30 am – 6.00 pm

Artistic research as it has emerged and evolved over the last three decades is related to an increasing interest in epistemological questions as well as an interrogation of how artistic practices constitutively support and instigate processes of knowledge creation. Art is thus being looked at both as an object and a medium of research, becoming part of a general discourse on knowledge regimes and research models.

The symposium will investigate this dynamic, ever-renewing field of interrelations with a special focus on the performing arts. Highlighting the issue of various implementation models in curricula and study programmes in higher arts education, it will critically analyse international institutional policies and facilitate an open debate on how to integrate current practices and discourses into future teaching and research structures.
