TrAIN Ph.D. Student Anne Luther - Research Fellowship at The Parsons Institute for Information Mapping (PIIM) May/June 2013
My research investigates differing collecting networks, questions the notion of a structured group concept of contemporary art collectors, and explores the varied roles that collectors perform in contemporary art production since 2000.
During the research fellowship at PIIM I will explore possible impact and limitation of data visualisation as part of the evaluation of qualitative data. Why and how to use visualisation tools in the context of qualitative data evaluation? What are the limitations and advantages of this research method?
‘The Parsons Institute for Information Mapping (PIIM) is a Research, Development and Professional Services facility within The New School, whose mission is to advance the field of Knowledge Visualization through academic and commercial pursuits.’ (http://piim.newschool.edu/) The research fellowship is supported by the UAL Research Degree Student Support Fund.

Multidisciplinary Research Conference at Chelsea College of Art & Design
Supported by the Transnational Art, Identity, & Nation Research Centre (TrAIN), CCW Graduate School, University of the Arts London
Conference Date: May 8th 2013, 10:00am- 5:30pm
Venue: Banqueting Hall and Red Room,
Chelsea College of Art and Design
OPEN CALL FOR PAPERS
Submission Deadline: March 8th 2013
Send to: email@example.com
Following on from a highly successful symposium in 2012, doctoral candidates affiliated to the TrAIN research centre at CCW Graduate School are issuing an ‘open call’ for papers on the theme of spaces of re-contestation to encourage dialogue between PhD researchers beyond the University of The Arts London.
Our keynote speaker last year, Eyal Sivan, urged us to ‘re-vision’ these spaces, through acts of appropriation and re-appropriation.
Submitted papers (which could include practice based research material) will hopefully raise questions around and build on either or both themes, in their various interpretations. Interdisciplinary contributions will be encouraged. Though this list is not exhaustive, research topics relevant to this year’s conference might explore multiple imaginings and articulations of ‘re’-contested sites/sights in relation to the following:
·Revisiting : Histories and memories of place making
·Belonging and ownership: Constructions of private vs. public spheres
·“Safe” spaces of consensus versus spaces of conflict
The purpose of this conference is to meet with other University researchers and exchange knowledge on themes and issues, which are relevant to our own, shared practices. We are hoping for a response from a diverse range of Doctoral researchers.
