Call for Applications: Screen Cultures and Curatorial Studies

Agnes Etherington Art Centre and the Department of Film and Media at Queen’s University are accepting applications for an MA and PhD in Screen Cultures and Curatorial Studies.

Launched in the Fall of 2019, Screen Cultures and Curatorial Studies is a collaboration between Agnes Etherington Art Centre and the Department of Film and Media and offers a unique opportunity for a funded one-year MA and a four-year PhD. The program’s three strongly interconnected areas of focus—studies, production and curatorial practice—are designed to stimulate inventive dialogue in ways that ensure their respective influence, and in ways that open exciting points of access to multiple disciplinary formations. This collaborative tripartite structure is not offered in any other film, media, cinema, art or communication MA or PhD program in Ontario.

Housed in the state-of-the-art Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts and Agnes Etherington Art Centre, the MA and PhD in Screen Cultures and Curatorial Studies are unique because of their linkage to adjacent disciplines: film and media studies and, more generally, the study of screen cultures, critical theory, film and media production, and curatorial studies and practice. These multidisciplinary programs provide students with a wide range of educational and professional opportunities, including academia, arts management, programming, media production (from mainstream media to artistic and activist production), and curating.

Application deadline: 31 January 2022
