Expanding the Field: Rethinking Methodologies in British Art Research

DRN and ECRN Events

  • 23 June 2023
  • 10:00 – 8:00 pm
  • Paul Mellon Centre and Online

The ECRN and DRN Summer Symposium and social will be a hybrid event. The in-person event will be followed by a social gathering for all DRN and ECRN members.

This event has been programmed by the Early Career Researchers Network (ECRN) and Doctoral Researchers Network (DRN). All interested parties are welcome to attend. You can find out more about the networks here.

This annual symposium offers an opportunity for doctoral and early career researchers to share and discuss their research creative methods, varied approaches, ethics and methodologies on topics related to British art and art history (broadly defined). By questioning “how we come to know what we know”, we aim to reflect on the current possibilities, dilemmas and challenges in academic research, participatory engagement or creative practice.

Join us to hear from speakers presenting on a variety of topics that cover decolonial, postcolonial, feminist or queer perspectives; address the impact of quantitative and data-driven methodologies; report on practice-based, curatorial or collaborative research; or reflect on the role of different media, including digital, audio and filmmaking.

The Summer Symposium ends at 5pm and will be followed by the Summer Social, a chance for all of our members to relax and join their peers for a drink.

We are pleased to announce that travel grants are available for DRN and ECRN members travelling to London from within the UK to join us for the day. Please contact us at [email protected] if you would like to be considered for a travel grant.
