PhD Studentship: Emerging Environments, Evolving Identity, Photographic Practices and Expanding Media, UK

The aim of this project is to analyze relationships between space and image within a particular landscape through new photographic technologies

Study Subject: Photographic media

Employer: University of Northampton

Level: PhD

Scholarship Description: The University of Northampton invites applications for a three year full-time studentship to explore the interface between changes to the environment, photographic representation and identity formation.

The research principally interrogates the interface between changes evident in the external landscape/environment (natural and/or man-made) and photographic representation as an experiential process, reflecting upon the complex relationship between environmental change and identity formation. Central to this work will be the development of methodologies and approaches to explore the recent expansion of lens-based technologies and digital media in relation to audience and spectatorship, and the use of photography as a research method.

The aims of the project are as follows:
• To analyse relationships between space and image within a particular landscape through new photographic technologies
• To interrogate relationships between the individual, identity, community and place and visual representation through a synthesis of original image production and cross-disciplinary critical analysis.
• To investigate the interconnectedness between emergent/transitional place and space, ethnic/cultural manifestation and formation and image in a context of accelerated physical, social, economic and technological change
• To develop original forms of communication/expression through which complex relationships between people and their evolving environment might be represented
