CHASE brings together 9 leading institutions engaged in collaborative research activities including an AHRC doctoral training partnership. These are the Universities of East Anglia, Essex, Kent and Sussex, the Open University, The Courtauld Institute of Art, Goldsmiths, University of London, Birkbeck, University of London and SOAS, University of London.
It is central to our ethos that serious disciplinary research is interdisciplinary. Across the arts and humanities, we study periods, cultures and communities in which modern disciplinary boundaries simply did not and do not exist; equally, emergent or less-established fields of study require new forms of attention, practice and communication.
CHASE supports discipline-based projects, but also specialises in interdisciplinary research and research in emerging fields of study and creative practice. Our research and training environment encourages doctoral researchers to develop new methodologies. In addition, our network of partnerships with leading organisations in the creative and public sectors provide an outstanding resource for future CHASE scholars.
This site is a repository of resources developed from our doctoral training in arts and humanities. It is open to everyone.
Training at your institution
All CHASE member institutions provide a programme of core research and professional development skills training for doctoral researchers. Sessions will be provided by your doctoral or graduate school, by your academic school or department, or by your careers service – this varies between institutions. These opportunities will be explained to you at your institutional induction. If you need training on a topic that is not offered at your institution, as a CHASE-funded student you are also able to access the training sessions offered by other institutions, and claim travel expenses to attend.
