This series of 5 interdisciplinary events was based on a collaboration between staff in the Art, English & Comparative Literature, Media & Communications and Music departments at Goldsmiths, the School of Media, Film and Music at Sussex, the Department of Literature, Film and Theatre Studies at Essex, the School of Arts at Kent, the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing at UEA, the History of Art Department at the OU, and drawing upon the contribution of non-CHASE institutions and associations such as Kingston, the Institute of Contemporary Art, the Society of Authors, English PEN, the Centre for Investigative Journalism.
Our umbrella concept, Intimacies, signals our interest in reflecting upon how different creative and critical practices explore the representation of the personal, the boundaries and openness between the private and the social, narratives in which self and other are entwined, and to focus on the intellectual, critical and ethical issues that these raise.
These events provided an opportunity for students not only to gain experience in organising complex academic and professional events but also to test out the articulation of their individual practices and projects in the context of professional and academic mentors and peers, to reflect on the ethical implications of their practice-led work. Various forms of publication are envisaged from these events, which will be open to all CHASE HEIs as well as non-CHASE PhD candidates and supervisors with a view to capacity-building in a strategic area of research during and after the CHASE consortium’s lifetime.
Please note: The Intimacies training programme has now finished.
