Research themes
  • Research themes

    Three cross-disciplinary Research Themes form the organisational pillars of research activity at Norwich University of the Arts. They are each led by a Research Champion and include academic staff and postgraduate research students.Β 
    • Pattern and Chaos – dedicated to the practice and theory of pattern, chaos and the spaces in between.
    • Created and Contested Territories (CaCTus) – questioning the interpretation and representation of contested creative and material practices; focusing on the cultural and political networks in which art, design and media are produced, valued and consumed.
    • Human Interfaces – exploring the slipperiness of human interfaces – the disruptions, unreliable narrators and narratives, the fabricated memory and histories, the holes and gaps, the truths, the lies – and how these might shift across cultures, time and art/design forms.
