We support students who are working on a wide range of topics from community engagement through to performance art, drawing or printmaking.

We welcome early conversations with the team to consider ideas and approaches and establish the best fit of a supervisory team. Indicative research being undertaken by PhD students within the team currently includes:

  • investigations into MIMA's drawing collection
  • artists' writings and publications
  • critical creative pedagogies
  • disability histories within contemporary art practice
  • MIMA and its community research
  • art and activism
  • interspecies collaboration and the Anthropocene
  • feminist art histories of Britain
  • oral histories of the town through creative interrogation
  • mental health and art therapies nationally and internationally.
