Masters by Research and PhD program Critical Spatial Thinking
Design and Performative Practice

The School of Design’s Interior and Spatial Program within the Faculty of DAB at UTS invite applications to undertake a Masters by Research and a PhD  in the area of Critical Spatial Thinking:  Design and Performative Practice.

This postgraduate program brings together candidates and leading academics from the UTS School of Design in a transdisciplinary research cluster. Working across the disciplines of spatial design, architecture, theatre, exhibition and media, the program engages existing design and artistic competencies and applies them directly to questions of Design and Performative Practice.

Masters by Research and PhD proposals must relate to one or several of the program’s main research areas:

  • Critical Practices: Performance, Design and the Politics of Space
  • Sharing Space: Collaborative Practices in Curating, Design and Performance
  • Staging the City: Performative Strategies and the Activation of Urban Space

The current academic leads are Prof Thea Brejzek and Prof Lawrence Wallen.

Suitably qualified candidates may also apply to do a Joint PhD with the Technical University Berlin under the UTS Key Technology Partner (KTP) program.

Applications are ongoing. Candidates wishing to be considered for an APA scholarship must submit the complete application, including a research proposal, to the UTS Graduate Research School.
