research council announces artistic research grants



The Swedish Research council has anounced its research grants for 2015 and forward. This year there has been an exact equality between male and female applicants, and a majority of the granted applications were from female applicants. In the arts research funding, gender distribution among professors and wages have become much more equal than in other parts of the academic world. A total of 8 applications were granted support (16%).

Before having looked more closely at the projects granted support we may lean on Jan Kaila’s assurement that these projects show methodological awareness in subjects distributed in litterature, music, film, architecture and visual art. It is however worth noting that less than half of the projects are led by artistic researchers with an artistic research exam, and two of those that are have graduated in the old exam rooted in musicology with a performance focus. Three out of eight projects are given to artistic researcher at Gothenburg University.

Tags: , ,

The Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education, STINT, was set up by the Swedish Government in 1994 with the mission to internationalise Swedish higher education and research. They are announcing a series of grants for international exchange. Most of these are for researchers that are working at a university in Sweden and have obtained their PhD. But if these kinds of projects are of interest it may be good to look at the grants offered and start thinking about designing a compatible project.

jar6 call for contributions


JAR6: Journal of Artistic Research

Unlike the traditional journal article format, JAR offers its contributors a free-to-use online writing space where text can be woven together with image, audio and video material. This new approach displays research practice in a manner that respects artists’ modes of presentation and incorporates web-enabled possibilities for collaboration, debate and discussion. The result is a journal that promotes experimental approaches to ‘writing up’ and provides a unique ‘reading’ experience, while carefully fulfilling the expectations of a peer-reviewed academic journal. We embrace research practices across and between disciplines, from artists worldwide, with or without academic affiliation.

Send your correspondence to Managing Editor, Journal for Artistic Research Barnaby Drabble.
