LUCA School of Arts offers a 4-Year PhD Scholarship in Animation

Are you a practicing artist in the fields of animation with a strong interest in artistic research? LUCA School of Arts is offering a four-year PhD scholarship at KU Leuven for an artist-researcher in animation under the supervision of prof. dr. Wendy Morris. We encourage interdisciplinary and intermedial projects that integrate knowledge and perspectives from different research domains and activities. We are especially interested in projects that engage with the recuperation or examination of marginalized and contested histories, narratives and archives. The candidate will develop an integrated project that researches through, and reflects upon, animation. The deadline for applications is 20 January 2019. More information and applications:
