The Centre for Chinese Visual Arts (CCVA) at Birmingham City University aims to foster new understandings and perspectives of Chinese contemporary arts, design and visual culture through interdisciplinary practices and theoretical studies. Following the 15-year success of our CCVA Annual Conference, which invites researchers, curators, artists, designers, and practitioners at all stages of their careers to share the latest research development on the theme proposed each year, we launch the First CCVA PhD Forum.
In response to the increase of doctoral projects in the field of Chinese arts, design, media, and visual culture, this CCVA PhD Forum is designed as a UK-wide platform to support PhD students further, enhance intellectual exchanges of ideas and critical debates, expand participation of young generation scholars, and celebrate our achievement of up-to-date doctoral research. As a summer event to complement our winter conference, CCVA PhD Forum aims to provide a unique space for all students within and beyond the UK, who are conducting doctoral research, new PhDs (awarded within 12 months on 7 July 2023), as well as for supervisors, advisors, and examiners, and those who are interested in pursuing a PhD in the future, to share, debate and innovate.
Unlike our Annual Conference, the CCVA PhD Forum will not be themed. It welcomes proposals to present their PhD projects in any subject area of the arts and design but in relation to China and its dramatic transformations in the social, political, and cultural contexts. We see China as a method to encourage and foster cross-disciplinary discussion, new understanding, and knowledge production, and at the same time, as a focus to bring us closer to each other.
Presentations should last no more than 20 minutes. Forum fee: £30 (whole day attendance), £70 (full attendance including Forum dinner). Please note that this Forum will be in person only.

To apply, please complete the attached form (link below) and send it to Yining.Hemail.bcu.ac.uk and ccvabcu.ac.uk, with a subject titled ‘CCVA PhD Forum 1’, by 31 March 2023. Submitted proposals will be reviewed by CCVA PhD Forum Panel. Successful proposals will be notified within two weeks.

首届CCVA博士生论坛
开放申请

论坛日期:2023年6月30日
论坛地点:英国伯明翰城市大学,伯明翰艺术学院
英国伯明翰城市大学“中国视觉艺术中心”(CCVA)的创立旨在通过跨学科的实践和理论研究,促进学界对中国当代艺术、设计和视觉文化的新理解和新观点。截至2022年底,CCVA年会已经成功举办了15年,曾邀请处于职业生涯各个阶段的研究者、策展人、艺术家、设计师和实践者分享与各年主题相关的最新研究进展。在CCVA年会的基础上,我们将于2023年推出首届CCVA博士生论坛。
随着中国艺术、设计、媒体和视觉文化领域博士项目在英国的逐年增加,CCVA博士生论坛旨在全英范围内,建立一个支持以上各领域研究的博士生交流平台。该博士生论坛期待通过增进各高校研究者的思想交流和批判性辩论,扩大年轻一代学者的参与度,并以此来庆贺业内最新取得的博士研究成果。首届CCVA博士生论坛作为CCVA年会并行的年度活动,旨在为所有正在英国以及英国以外进行研究的博士生,新晋博士(2023年7月7日前12月内被授予博士学位),院校导师、顾问与考官,以及那些有兴趣在未来攻读博士学位的申请者提供一个分享、辩论和创新的独特空间。
区别于年会,CCVA博士生论坛将不设主题。首届年会欢迎任何艺术和设计学科领域的在读博士生与新晋博士,针对与中国,及其在社会、政治和文化语境下的戏剧性转变相关的研究进行分享。我们将中国视为一种方法,鼓励和促进跨学科的讨论、新的理解和知识生产,同时,也作为一个焦点,由此拉近我们彼此之间的距离。
出席演讲时间不超过20分钟。论坛费用:30英镑(全天出席),70英镑(全程出席包括论坛晚宴)。本论坛仅限线下出席。
如需申请,请填写链接中所附表格,并在2023年3月31日前将标明“CCVA PhD Forum 1”主题的邮件连通表格发送至项目负责人何伊宁邮箱(Yining.Hemail.bcu.ac.uk) 并抄送 ccvabcu.ac.uk。提交的提案将由CCVA博士生论坛评审团。申请结果将在两周内公布。
