PhD Scholarship (DEL Strategic Award)
School of Creative Arts
Queen’s University Belfast
An investigation into, and the design of, interactive software appropriate for use in the Prisons Memory Archive, which is a collection of filmed interviews inside Northern Irish prisons (www.prisonsmemoryarchive.com<http://www.prisonsmemoryarchive.com>).
The PhD student will address the methodological challenge of designing the most appropriate interactive software so that users will become co-creators of narratives and meanings, rather than simply be exposed to a linear documentary. By involving users as editors and by offering pathways that integrate varied and contrasting memories, the software encourages a witnessing of the ‘other’ experiences, which is crucial in addressing the legacy of a conflicted past and will be of use in other post conflict societies.
The applicant should have previous knowledge of software design and experience working with the moving image.
