PhD Funding: Artistic Re-enactments of Performance Art as Vehicles of
Cultural Transfer in Eastern Europe since 1960
Department of Film and Visual Culture, University of Aberdeen
Supervisor: Dr. Amy Bryzgel, Senior Lecturer in Film and Visual Culture,
University of Aberdeen (a.bryzgel at abdn.ac.uk)
Application Deadline: March 21, 2017

Applications are invited for PhD research topics that focus on artistic
re-enactments of performances from across the former communist and
socialist countries of Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe in
recent artistic practice. There are numerous examples of artistic
re-enactments across the region, providing scope for a range of
dissertation topics. Projects can include comparative studies, for
example, of the relevance of re-enactments in one local tradition versus
that of another; or single-country studies of a number of re-enactments
being staged in one context. Dissertations will address the following
research questions: what are the various functions of artistic
re-enactments of performances in Eastern Europe? How do these functions
compare with current understandings of re-enactment in the West? How can
re-enactments be used to access a lost or inaccessible history (such as
performance art in Eastern Europe)? Also welcome are proposals that
consider revisiting culturally relevant or historically significant
places by artists or within the context of artistic re-enactments.
  Selection will be made on the basis of academic merit. Individuals
with a strong research background in the field of Eastern European
contemporary art and/or performance art, from either an art history or
visual culture background, are encouraged to apply. Applicants should
have the necessary language skills needed to undertake the proposed
research, and should consider funding sources for travel to conduct
field research abroad if it is necessary to the proposed project.

The project is funded by a University of Aberdeen Elphinstone
Scholarship, which covers the cost of tuition fees only, whether Home,
EU or Overseas, and will be awarded through an open competition.

Interested applicants should contact Dr. Amy Bryzgel with a project
proposal of no more than 2,000 words, including discussion of Aims and
Objectives, Research Questions, Research Context, Methodology and
Critical Approach.

Deadline for all applications: 21 March 2017
