- Project description:
WRoCAH funded Collaborative Doctoral Award between School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies at the University of Leeds and Harewood House Trust
To investigate a cross-curricula model of learning at KS4, provided by the context of a country house, whose collections and assets link naturally across subject disciplines and which provides a learning environment which is non-subject specific.
By considering the country house as a setting for learning, this research will investigate how the country house can model an alternative pedagogy to the dominant subject-specific model in secondary schools.
How can an interdisciplinary learning experience impact on student attainment, breadth of knowledge and opportunities for progression to the creative subjects from KS3/4 to KS5 and beyond?
Examining the Importance of Cross-Curricula Formal Learning in a Country House Setting
Strong applicants will have a good first degree in an appropriate subject, as well as a Master’s degree and professional experience relevant to the scope of the project (or experience of belonging to a collaborative team). Please note that all applicants should meet the AHRC’s academic criteria and residency requirements: http://wrocah.ac.uk/new-student/2019-cda/
