Fast Forward Vice-Chancellor Studentships 2024 at University for the Creative Arts

University for the Creative Arts are offering two Vice-Chancellor’s Studentships that are part of the Fast Forward: Women in Photography research project.

Full fee-waver with three year stipend:

The project Collecting, conserving, and displaying photography in the National Galleries of Scotland aims to investigate the stories of womxn, and minority groups represented in the archives of the National Galleries of Scotland both as photographers and subjects with a view to creating new policy for the collection of photography. The research will involve finding new approaches to collecting, cataloguing, display and audience engagement and will also evaluate future conservancy requirements. The research will enable innovation in collections policy and could act as a model for institutions across the UK.

Full fee-waver for three years:

The project Contemporary photographic Work by Queer Diasporic communities will investigate the work and stories of contemporary queer photographers who have emigrated in order to be able to make their own photographic work based on personal identity in relation to gender and sexuality.

This is an original and significant area of investigation that will provoke new thinking and original research. Referencing a variety of research on gender identity, migration and post-colonial studies this new proposition is designed to investigate the work of photographers in diasporas across the world.
