Student-Led Research Conference Banqueting Hall and Red Room, Chelsea College of Art & Design, 8th May 2013
’Re-Contested Sites/Sights’ is the theme of UAL’s second Doctoral student-led research conference sponsored by the Research Centre for Transnational Art, Identity, and Nation (TrAIN).
The conference will bring together research projects which challenge dominant ways of perceiving identities and bodies, spaces and places as well as questioning their visual representations. Last year’s keynote speaker, documentary film-maker Eyal Sivan, urged us to ‘re-vision’ these spaces, through acts of appropriation and re-appropriation. These presentations of various modes, from a range of disciplines, will continue to challenge these spaces in what promises to be a day full of creative exchanges of ideas and practices, between Doctoral candidates at the University of the Arts, London and TrAIN, with a selected number of PhD students from other UK Universities.
