GradCAM PhD Researcher Siobhán Doyle Offered Place in Prestigious Summer School

PhD Researcher at the Graduate School of Creative Arts and Media (GradCAM), Siobhán Doyle has been offered a place at the 2018 Summer School Museum Objects as Evidence: Approaches to the Material World.  From 9-20 July 2018 the Rijksmuseum, the University of Amsterdam and the Bard Graduate Center, will collaborate in offering a prestigious Summer School with an interdisciplinary focus on object-based research within a museum setting. Experts in the field will provide fifteen students from around the world with an exclusive and in-depth look behind the scenes in the conservation studios, science laboratories and museum departments where they operate.

Siobhán is a third year PhD Researcher at the Graduate School of Creative Arts and Media (GradCAM) in the School of Creative Arts at Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) under the supervision of Dr Tim Stott and Dr Niamh Ann Kelly and received the Dean of the College of Arts & Tourism scholarship award in March 2016.

Siobhán’s doctoral research concerns the material and visual culture of modern Ireland with particular focus upon the role of exhibition display in commemoration and collective memory. Siobhán has presented research papers at international conferences on historical memory and visual culture at Columbia University, University of Hertfordshire and Stockholm University. Siobhán’s research on mediating death in museums using James Connolly’s bloodstained vest as a case study will be published in May this year by the European Remembrance and Solidarity Network in their journal on 20th century conflict. In March 2018, Siobhán convened a museum workshop Curating Conflict; at Dublin Institute of Technology which brings together museum experts and leading researchers from across the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and England, to discuss best practices in collecting, curating and exhibiting conflict in museums and galleries.

Siobhán’s research uses historical and visual analysis to examine the range of practices that take place in order to render ordinary objects as valuable material evidence of significant events in history. These key practices are being addressed at the Museum Objects of Evidence Summer School and will provide Siobhán with valuable insights into the processes of how the sensory experiences of past material cultures can be understood through the study of museum objects.
