Film Studies (Integrated) PhD
The Integrated PhD is designed to prepare you for doctoral-level study by providing an additional year of taught modules and focused supervision before you move on to your PhD research. The programme is suitable for all those wishing to engage in research but should appeal to those who have the basis of a research project but require additional support to develop this into a feasible PhD study. During Year 1, in addition to completing taught modules, students will also enrol on a year-long non-credit-bearing Independent Study Module. Anyone wishing to embark on an integrated PhD should discuss the programme with the PGR academic lead, Dr Elena Caoduro, as well as making contact with a potential supervisor. We offer research programmes in both critical and creative practice. These are designed for students who wish to conduct research into historical or broader theoretical issues in film and audiovisual cultures, or those who are interested in practice-led research. We encourage cross-disciplinary projects, especially those involving other areas within the School of Creative Arts. There are three programme routes: PhD in Film and Visual Studies (Creative Practice). Students opting for the PhD (Creative Practice) route will produce a body of supervised creative work, accompanied by a written critical treatment contextualising this work with the broader field of film and audiovisual cultures. We are particularly interested in applications in the following areas: Documentary Film, Conflict Transformation, New Media and Experimental Aesthetic Practices, Film Performance, Fiction Storytelling and Direction, Cinematography, Film Philosophy, Affect theory (Deleuze), Celluloid and Digital Film Processes, and Film Semiotics. PhD in Film and Visual Studies (Critical Practice). The PhD in Film and Visual Studies (Critical Practice) route offers students the opportunity to undertake advanced, original research in one of our current areas of specialisation: cinema history and historiography; sound and film; world and comparative film studies; documentary film; and Irish film and audiovisual culture. MPhil: The third route, the MPhil, also offers students the opportunity to undertake advanced research in either critical or creative practice in one of our areas of specialisation. Mode of study/duration. Registration is on a full-time or part-time basis, under the direction of a supervisory team appointed by the University. You will be expected to submit your thesis at the end of three years of full-time registration for PhD, or two years for MPhil (or part-time equivalent).]
