RADIAN: Practice-led Phd in Artistic Research and Creation

RADIAN, practice-led PhD in artistic research and creation open to the fields of art, design, architecture and creative writing.

The three higher education schools of culture in Normandy – ésam Caen/Cherbourg, École supérieure d’art et design Le Havre-Rouen (ESADHaR), and École nationale supérieure d’architecture de Normandie (ENSA Normandie), – members of the Normandy University Community of Universities and Institutions (COMUE), and the doctoral school "History, Memory, Heritage, Language" (ED HMPL 558) created in 2018 RADIAN, a practice-led PhD in artistic research and creation open to the fields of art, design, architecture and creative writing.

The practice-led PhD consists of an artistic work (or a group of artistic works) accompanied by a theoretical document of about one hundred pages and a research notebook retracing the evolution of the project.

Proposing to conduct experimental research rooted in contemporary creative practices, the RADIAN practice-led PhD is intended for artists, architects, designers and/or authors with an establishedand recognized production in their field. RADIAN allows the deployment of research throughp ractice and experimentation that leads to the production of plural artistic forms, coherent with the research problematic. Nourished by constant back-and-forth between theory and practice, between conceptualisation and experimentation, the research approach is deployed within and with the vocabularies, languages, methods, media and issues of contemporary creation. The PhD is supervised by two researchers, one of whom holds a habilitation to direct research (“habilitation à diriger des recherches”, the academic qualification requested in France in order to supervise PhDstudents), the other from one of the three schools.

Two PhD students, each receiving an annual grant of 15 000 euros (financed by the Normandy Region), are recruited in 2022 for a period of three years.
