Course content

Music, Drama, Dance, Performing Arts, Film and Screen Studies Research is organised within interdisciplinary and subject/discipline research groups, and we collaborate with colleagues across Ulster as part of the Creative Industries Institute (established in 2017).

Research themes

We conduct discipline-specific and interdisciplinary research across a number of themes:

Arts, Heritage, and Conflict - post–conflict arts, arts and reconciliation/conflict transformation, cultural heritage, arts practices engaging with cultural heritage, arts and protest movements.

Applied Arts, Health and Disability - performance and health, applied drama, community/participatory music/music technology and disability)

Creative Industries - arts and cultural heritage sectors in economic contexts; organisational cultures, creative technologies)

Arts Practices and Practice-as-Research - from music theory and composition to dramaturgy, encompassing both practice–based and practice–led outputs as well as theoretical commentary.

Department specialisms

Proposals for theatre research in any area will be given careful consideration, recognising that any good PhD student will eventually become more expert in a specialised field than his/her supervisors. Applications for practice-based research are especially welcome.
