CHASE Doctoral Training Partnership is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and brings together 9 leading institutions engaged in collaborative research activities. These are UEA, Essex, Kent and Sussex, the Open University, The Courtauld Institute of Art, Goldsmiths, University of London and SOAS, University of London. Colleagues across these institutions have been working for more than three years to develop a new and unique environment in which to undertake doctoral research.

It is central to the CHASE 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 provides an outstanding resource for CHASE scholars.
