After the introductory year you will participate in 8 focus or event sessions spread over the 2nd, 3rd and 4th year:
- Focus sessions - aimed at relatively small
groups - are practice-based and allow you to choose a session that
caters more directly to your personal doctoral project topic than the
intro year sessions. The goal is to have you take a step forward in some
aspect of your research (from methodological concerns to progress in
the writing of the dissertation) during the focus session. The sessions
will be curated by one or more experts in the field of the focus.
- Event sessions
are organized by the Orpheus Institute and its Research Centre and
integrated in the doctoral curriculum so that both you, senior
researchers and other experts can benefit from this unique opportunity
to share and exchange artistic research findings within a fertile
professional research biotope. Event sessions can include e.g. Orpheus
Seminars, Orpheus Doctoral Conference and others.
