Research Skills Intercollegiate Network (ReSkiN) – 2020/21 (various dates) (Previous Staff-Led Events)
ReSkIN provides cross-institutional skills training and networking opportunities for PhD students from across London working in the interdisciplinary field pertaining to visual and material culture: history of art and architecture, visual culture and related areas, including practice led PhDs. It is jointly organised by the following institutions: UCL (History of Art, Bartlett School of Architecture, the Slade School of Art), the Warburg Institute, Birkbeck History of Art, SOAS, History of Art and Archaeology, the Courtauld Institute of Art, and Goldsmiths Visual Culture. More specifically, the events are organised and run by the graduate tutors of the participating institutions and a paid research assistant (typically a UCL History of Art PhD student).
ReSkIN was founded more than 10 years ago. It runs on the basis of a well-established format and has been a highly successful skills training and networking scheme that has received AHRC funding throughout, and has recently been co-sponsored by LAHP and CHASE.
The events target first-year PhD students and take the shape of two one-day events per academic year – one in the autumn term and one in the spring term.
*Details for the 2020/21 events will be published in due course
