What’s it like being a researcher at HARTS? Read what our post-graduate students have to say about their research, activities, achievements and ideas that matter to them. Our students are a varied bunch that come from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines encompassing theoretical, empirical and practice-based enquiry. Stories is a place where disciplinary boundaries can be crossed and research ideas can be shared across the faculty, fostering knowledge exchange between researchers.

When Words Falter – Sara Davies

Sara Davies has recently published an essay about her art practice in Open Arts Journal Issue 7, Summer 2019. The essay is titled When Words Falter and is exploring her artistic process during the early stages of her PhD. It is investigating the idea of diasporic touch, a reiterated gesture in her practice which expresses her Anglo-Swedish dual heritage.

Automation and Me, Hackathon – Sarah-Joy Ford

I was invited to take part in the Automation and Me Hackathon as part of Leeds International Festival 2019 organized by Northern Sound Collective. The event brought together 20 female digital artists, to talk, collaborate and generate new, provisional works.
