Pursuing a PhD through fine art practice requires the production of a major body of work within a critically reflective frame of enquiry. PhD researchers are expected to extend and develop a particular area of art practice through practical work, exhibition and discursive production.
NCAD PhD researchers currently work in:
* Performance, the body and subjectivity.
* Audio-spaces, four-dimensional design and experience-design.
* Sculptural articulations in the wake of the demise of modernist urban utopianism.
* Image archives, the body and the uncanny.
Sport, spatial practices and game construction.
Applications to pursue PhD work across many more areas of enquiry are welcomed. The written component of the PhD submission is typically 20,000 to 40,000 words in length. Applicants interested in an opportunity to discuss a proposed topic of research/practice should contact the Head of Research and Postgraduate Development at
