The Shared Gaze: Reimagining Sexual Reproduction through Visual Arts Practices


Partner: Birth Rites Collection/ Royal College of Art


Academic lead: Hermione Wiltshire, Royal College of Art


Applications are invited for a LAHP/AHRC-funded Collaborative Doctoral Award at the Royal College of Art in collaboration with Birth Rites Collection. This fully-funded studentship will commence in October 2020. This is a unique and rare opportunity for interdisciplinary research between the Royal College of Art and the Birth Rites Collection which is hosted by the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care, King’s College London. By framing and examining midwifery, birth and neonatal care through the lens of contemporary visual art, the project builds on discourses that bring together elements of medical practices, historical narratives of birth, the caring professions, fine and applied art practices including curating.
