FUNDED PhD: ESRC White Rose DTP Collaborative Studentship: Decolonising Sculpture for Urban Social Justice (DISCUSS) – University of Leeds + Leeds City Council

Deadline: 30 April 5pm
Maintenance Grant available : £15,609
DISCUSS examines public art, including sculptures, murals and installations as part of the urban environment, at a time when debates are intensifying about how to address/redress racial and ethnic inequality and dismantle an urban colonial legacy still evident in visual culture, encompassing monuments/public art. Jointly building on decolonial thought and the Leeds statue review, DISCUSS will advance knowledge of urban social justice through social scientific investigation into the extent to which Leeds-based public-art policies and practices allow scope for racial and ethnic diversity and inclusive provision.
