Reconfiguring dramaturgy for a global public: Changing practices in 21st century European theatre (5+3), 2019-12

PhD fellowship in the field of Reconfiguring dramaturgy for a global public: Changing practices in 21st century European theatre (5+3)

The Graduate School at Arts, Faculty of Arts, Aarhus University, in collaboration with Aarhus University Research Foundation (AUFF Starting Grant), invites applications for a fully-funded PhD fellowship in Reconfiguring dramaturgy for a global public: Changing practices in 21st century European theatre provided the necessary funding is available. This PhD fellowship is available as of 1 January 2020 for a period of up to three years (5+3). The candidate who is awarded the fellowship must commence his/her PhD degree programme on 1 January 2020. 

The PhD fellowship will be financed by the 2 parties.

The PhD fellowship is advertised within the field of Reconfiguring dramaturgy for a global public: Changing practices in 21st century European theatre.

European theatre practices and institutions today respond to a shifting post-national and post-bourgeois cultural context, and to challenges of globalisation, digitalisation, and anti-democratic populism. As part of a funded research project team, this PhD scholarship will support a research proposal that seeks to analyse the resulting reconfiguration of theatre dramaturgic practice on a (potentially comparative) European dimension. Of particular interest are proposals that interrogate the continuities and shifts in relation to established formal, aesthetic and institutional dramaturgic conventions, including the role and place of the canonised repertoire of plays, and the work of the theatre ensemble.

The PhD student must complete the studies in accordance with the valid regulations for the PhD degree programme, currently the Ministerial Order of 27 August 2013 on the PhD degree programme at the universities: http://phd.arts.au.dk/applicants/thephddegreeprogramme/
