Jo Langton

I propose to research and reveal the relationship between the technological inventions and musical creativity of a selection of electronic composers in the period 1950s-80s. These composers (who include Daphne Oram, Theresa Rampazzi, Beatriz Ferreyra and Laurie Spiegel) are of particular research interest as they all combined technological invention with music composition (what may now be referred to as ‘electronicist’) and their contributions are under-represented in the field.

 

Lucy Kate Newby

The proposed doctoral project seeks to investigate the ways in which those who experienced childhood and adolescence during the Northern Irish ‘Troubles’ 1969-1994, have subsequently reflected upon and made sense of their own experiences of living within its disrupted environment.

My study interrogates the haptic within a corpous of contemporary films by female filmmakers through a critical engagement with Luce Irigaray's concepts of female subjectivity. The application of Irigarayan theory and film-philosophical ideas on the haptic to embodied praxis is to date an uncharted field of research. My research aims to bridge the gap between theoretical research in film philosophy, feminist phenomenology and the emergent practice-based research within film scholarship.
