Call for Applications: SGSAH Research Residency

Hospitalfield is working with the Scottish Graduate School of Arts and Humanities to host a PhD researcher on a residency in May.

SGSAH will support a doctoral researcher working in any area of the arts and humanities, including the creative arts and arts policy, to spend two weeks 4 – 18 May 2018 at Hospitalfield as part of its Interdisciplinary Residency Programme, joining an international group of cultural practitioners and researchers. The researcher will be given space to undertake some specified and focused research and development work.

The scheme offers residencies at both Hospitalfield and Cove Park, on the west coast of Scotland, to doctoral researchers in arts and humanities at a SGSAH member HEI to spend one or two weeks in a focused period of research and development in their PhD work.

SGSAH is committed to connecting arts and humanities research with Scotland’s unique cultural resources, including beautiful and inspiring locations that offer space for creativity and reflection. We work with places and spaces that have an existing residency offer and that can provide researcher with a truly supported experience.

Last year composer Theodore Krosi Doute, based at University of Aberdeen, attended the residency and described his experience:

“I felt that this lack of constraints in terms of time and obligations, away from daily routine and responsibilities, greatly helped my creativity and productivity. During my time at Hospitalfield, I achieved important progress in my research.”
