technē Doctoral Training Partnership has secured support from the Arts and
Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to provide funding for
a further five years. The new
round of funding will support five cohorts of students starting in 2019/20,
with 57 studentships per cohort. technē is one of ten Doctoral Training Partnerships receiving funding
from the AHRC as part of their commitment to postgraduate funding in the arts
technē – as the DTP is named in reference to the Greek term
for craft – will build on its track record of supporting outstanding doctoral
students pursuing the ‘craft’ of research through innovative, interdisciplinary
approaches with an emphasis on creativity and practice.
The vision and the training offered by technē emphasises the
interweaving of critical thinking, making, and reflexive action in the craft of
research. Non-university Partners are
integral to this vision: technē’s
emphasis on postdoctoral careers beyond HEIs will nurture supportive exchanges
with staff in a variety of Partner organisations ranging from The National
Archives to Heathrow. Twenty-percent of technē studentships will be involve
collaboration with, and joint supervision by, non-university Partners.
