Test Lab

This academic year, Test Lab will be dedicated to a discussion of Writing and the PhD. Tackling the issue of writing in the context of PhDs in art and design practice, theory and history, Test Lab will approach the subject of writing from philosophical, epistemological, political, autobiographical, gendered, ethical, and experimental vantage points, as well as the practical and mundane aspects that are vital to writing a PhD.

In light of this remit, Test Lab will host a series of guest speakers including artists, academics, PhD students from inside and outside of UAL who will engage with the topic of Writing and the PhD through workshops, readings, lectures, and performances.

Test Lab runs on Wednesdays on alternate weeks to The Art of Questioning. It will take place from 11 – 1pm  in the Library Pods. (Please note change of time.)

If you are interested in contributing a presentation to this year’s Test Lab, please contact the convenor Dr Joanne Morra (g.morra@csm.arts.ac.uk)

PhD students from across UAL are welcome to attend Test Lab.

More details about the 2017-18 program will be posted very soon.

The Doctoral Platform at CSM offers PhD candidates the space in which to meet, share research, as well as co-ordinate, curate and participate in a variety of events.
