PhD researchers

Research at PGR level at WSA reflects the interests of the supervising staff, contributing to academic understanding at the very forefront of fine art and design as well as critical, historical and cultural studies. Our community is made up of a diverse range of researchers who have in common a commitment to engaging with critical debates within their fields and at the intersections of the disciplines which make up an art school’s remit—creative practices within fine art, graphic arts and design, media, arts management, fashion and textile design and curatorship. Below, some of our current PGRs are listed, with some details about their practices and research.
