Description
The Digital Arts and Humanities PhD at An Foras Feasa, NUI Maynooth is part of the structured PhD programme funded by PRTLI 5 in a consortium comprising National University of Ireland Maynooth, National University of Ireland Galway, Trinity College Dublin and University College Cork. What is DAH? DAH is a four-year structured doctoral research-training programme designed to enable students to carry out research in the arts and humanities at the highest level using new media and computer technologies. The ever-evolving developments in computing and their performative and analytical implications have brought about a quantum leap in arts and humanities research and practice. Digital Arts and Humanities is a field of study, research, teaching, and invention at the intersection of computing and information management with the arts and humanities. The DAH Structured PhD programme creates the research platform, the structures, partnerships and innovation models by which fourthlevel researchers can engage with a wide range of stakeholders in order to contribute to the developing digital arts and humanities community worldwide, as participants and as leaders. DAH promotes advanced practical and academic research in the application of new media and computer technologies, and works with industry partners and cultural institutions to ensure knowledge exchange and career development. DAH at NUI Maynooth DAH students at NUI Maynooth are part of An Foras Feasa’s research institute which has state-of-the-art research and teaching facilities in the university’s newly-opened Iontas building and a dynamic postgraduate community.
