        Subject: Call for Candidates: Digital Arts and Humanities PhD Program at University College Cork


University College Cork invites applications for places in the four-year
structured PhD programme in Digital Arts and Humanities (DAH). Successful
candidates will be registered with the full-time inter-disciplinary
structured PhD programme co-ordinated with an all-Irish university
consortium. Candidates will pursue their individual research agendas within
the program, based on projects developed from proposals which they provide
during the application process.  Deadline: 1 June 2013

Subject areas:

History, European Languages and Literatures, English, Music, Performing
Arts, Art and Art History, Irish Studies, Psychology, Digital Law.

What is DAH?

The ever-evolving developments in computing and their performative and
analytical implications have brought about a quantum leap in arts and
humanities research and practice. Digital Arts and Humanities is a field of
study, research, teaching, and invention at the intersection of computing
and information management with the arts and humanities.

The DAH Structured PhD programme has developed a research platform,
structures, partnerships and innovation models by which fourth-level
researchers can engage with a wide range of stakeholders in order to
contribute to the developing digital arts and humanities community
world-wide, as participants and as leaders. Currently the program includes
a vibrant community of 50 researchers throughout Ireland.

Programme Structure

Candidates will complete core, training and career development modules,
including main modules shared across the consortium and others
institutionally-based. The overall aim of the taught modules are threefold:
1) to introduce students to the history and theoretical issues in digital
arts/humanities; 2) to provide the skills needed to apply advanced
computational and information management paradigms to humanities/arts
research; 3) to provide an enabling framework for students to develop
generic and transferable skills to carry out their final research
projects/dissertations.

Year 1 of the four-year programme includes core and optional graduate
education modules delivered in Cork, Dublin, Galway and Maynooth. These
modules provide a grounding in essential research skills and transferable
skills together with access to specialist topics. In years 2 and 3 work on
PhD research projects is supplemented with access to elective modules. Year
3 features practical placements in industry, academic research environments
or cultural institutions.

University College Cork has a strong track record in Digital Humanities and
has been a pioneer in the development of digital tools for language study
and historiography. The College is strong in all disciplines of the
Humanities, with a particular concentration on Irish and European studies.
The Digital Arts and Humanities program currently has 26 students from
around the globe, studying topics ranging from Renaissance networking to
eighteenth-century country houses, from modern performance art to Irish
diaspora music performers in the USA and their stories.
