Practice as Research
This is a session for current PhD students and early career researchers whose research involves an element of artistic practice. The event is an opportunity to share experiences, perspectives, skills and tips with researchers in parallel disciplines in the departments of Dance, Drama, Music, Film & Media.
Guest speaker Dr. Caroline Wilkins
Independent composer/performer/researcher Dr. Caroline Wilkins comes from a background of new music performance, composition and theatre, and has worked extensively on solo and collaborative productions involving these.
She studied music at the Royal College of Music followed by new music theatre composition in Cologne, later completing a practice-based PhD in sound-theatre at Brunel University. Formerly she taught at Sydney Conservatorium of Music whilst pursuing parallel studies in theatre skills.
Current activities include conference presentations and academic publications alongside her work as a practitioner. A particular interest lies in the creation of new forms of presentation, whether in the fields of inter-medial sound theatre, sound poetry or performance art.
Film making lecturer Roter Su will be talking about his recently completed PhD in film making entitled Floating Home: A Journey of Taiwanese Identity for which he made a series of 7 short films and a feature documentary.
