Research Theme: The Cultural History of the Experiment: Understanding Collaboration Between the Arts and Sciences
It is now 50 years since the writer and physicist CP Snow famously decried the polarisation of the arts and sciences as “an immeasurable loss to intellectual and practical life.” The last decade has seen increasingly urgent calls for science, technology, engineering and maths – the STEM disciplines – to collaborate more broadly with the arts, embracing a STEAM approach to knowledge production. This project seeks to recover the long history of collaboration and engagement between the arts and sciences through a cultural history of the experiment, from its emergence in early modern science to contemporary experimental art. Its aim is to develop more productive models for collaboration between the arts and sciences.

While all relevant projects will be considered, proposals linked to the Fellowship themes are encouraged. Preference will be given to projects that encourage diversity and inclusivity in approach, by considering feminist, queer, non-Western, Indigenous, critical race or critical disability perspectives, or which develop innovative or interdisciplinary methodologies.

To be eligible, you must:

  *   Be assessed by the Graduate School as meeting all conditions for admission<http://graduate-school.uq.edu.au/uq-research-degrees> to the research higher degree program.
  *   Have an academic qualification equivalent to an Australian Bachelor’s degree with Honours Class I.
  *   Not hold a qualification at the same or a higher level than the research higher degree program you are undertaking.

How to Apply
To apply for admission and this scholarship please visit the UQ Graduate School website<https://graduate-school.uq.edu.au/project-scholarships> and review instructions.
