This one-day-symposium serves as the kick off of our initiative, it is an opportunity to bring together colleagues and alumni who are working on 3rd Cycle programmes or are PhD candidates themselves. We are eager to learn from each other, compare notes, share experiences and reflect critically on a variety of models and motivations.
During one day we will bring together a group of max. 60 interested peers, next to colleagues and alumni who are working on 3rd Cycle programmes or are PhD candidates themselves. In two intense sessions we will present a number of concrete individual and institutional examples, compare notes, share experiences and reflect critically on the different models and motivations at hand.
The first session is dedicated to artists and alumni of DasArts and the Master of Choreography that are currently enrolled in international PhD programmes or have already finished. What are their motives to pursue advanced research in the field of the performing arts? How does the 3rd Cycle add to their practice and how do they practice their research? The second session however will focus on representatives from three different programmes in Europe in the field of the arts and performing arts. What are the motivations and aims of these programmes? What distinguishes their so called practice-led degrees from exclusively historical or theoretical investigations of the arts? How do they function in terms of selection, structure, research conditions, writing and evaluation and assessment?
The event ends with constructive feedback by invited ‘observers’, discussion and recommendations by all involved.
