PhD Studentship.

£13,290 per annum maintenance will be provided, and course fees will be paid
for three years.

Research proposals are invited from applicants who wish to undertake a
practice-based PhD researching networked, distributed and collaborative
authorship in electronic arts and literature practices and the subsequent
implications for how creative communities form and creative practice
emerges. The PhD research project will explore questions through employing
theoretical and practical methods within the context of a larger European
wide research project.

Developing a Network-Based Creative Community: Electronic Literature as a
Model of Creativity and Innovation in Practice is a 1 million Euro, three
year research project funded by the Humanities in the European Research Area
Joint Research Programme. The project involves an academic consortium,
including Edinburgh College of Art, University of Bergen (Norway), Blekinge
Institute of Technology (Sweden), University of Amsterdam (Nederlands),
University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), University of Jyväskylä (Finland) and
University College Falmouth (England). Focusing on a particular creative
community, of electronic literature practitioners, the project inquires into
how creative communities of practitioners form within transnational and
transcultural contexts, within a globalised and distributed communications
environment, seeking to gain insight into and understanding of the social
effects and manifestations of creativity. Creative communities can be
regarded as microcosms of larger communities. Within networked culture
creative communities tend to be international and yet reflective of cultural
specificity, acting as a lens through which social change can be observed.
Such communities exist as local and global phenomena, in Ocreative cities¹
and Oglobal networks¹, and appear to draw value from this conjunction of
opposites. Whilst creativity is often perceived as the product of the
individual artist, or creative ensemble, it can also be considered an
emergent phenomenon of communities, driving change and facilitating
individual or ensemble creativity. Creativity can be a performative activity
released when engaged through and by a community and can thus be considered
an activity of exchange that enables (creates) people and communities.
Understanding creativity as emergent from and innate to the interactions of
people facilitates a non-instrumentalist analysis.

The successful candidate will work with Principal Investigator Professor
Simon Biggs, Co-Investigator Dr. Penny Travlou and Dr. Scott Rettberg
(University of Bergen, Project Leader), producing a body of their own
creative work, a thesis, assisting with ethnographic fieldwork, associated
research, publications, the project conference and exhibition. They will
liaise with project partners, particularly the University of Bergen and
Blekinge Institute of Technology (Maria Engberg and Talan Memmott), on the
design and development of the project website and DVD anthology of artists'
networked practice, as well as University College Falmouth (Jerome Fletcher)
and New Media Scotland, preparing a programme of performance based
electronic literature as part of the final exhibition and conference.

Candidates should possess either a Masters or a 1st or 2:1 degree in a
relevant digital and creative arts, design or computing discipline, or have
equivalent experience and skills, and be a practising artist or author in
the field of electronic arts and literature. Skills in digital media design
will be advantageous. The studentship will begin in September 2010 for a
period of three years. For UK and EU students, the remuneration will be at
the Arts and Humanities Research Council studentship rate and all fees will
be paid. For non-EU students the remuneration will cover approximately 1/3
of the annual student fees. Students on programmes at eca graduate with an
award from the University of Edinburgh.
