2017-18 MFA Research Assistantship – SSHRC Media Archive Project


2017-18 MFA Research Assistantship

Dr. Michael Darroch

SSHRC-funded project: Patterns that Connect: Re-Curating the Anthropological Media Studies of Edmund Carpenter

School of Creative Arts, University of Windsor, CANADA

Application Deadline: Feb 01, 2017


Dr. Michael Darroch, Co-Director of the IN/TERMINUS Creative Research Collective, is seeking an MFA student interested in pursuing graduate education with an interest in media history, archival studies, and digital database infrastructure. You will work with Dr. Darroch and his SSHRC Research Team (Dr. Janine Marchessault, York University; Dr. Hart Cohen, University of Western Sydney; Dr. Paul Heyer, Wilfrid Laurier University) to support the development of a media archive project.

The ideal candidate will have prior experience with archival research and media history. This will be evident in their portfolio and artist statement. However, it is not necessary that all applicants have previous hands-on experience in these areas.

The selected individual will enroll in one of our MFA programs in Visual Arts or Film and Media Arts and work with Dr Michael Darroch as Primary Advisor, and as an employer.

Successful candidates can expect graduate funding of up to $12,500 in year 01 through a combination of the research assistantship and graduate teaching. If successful, the contract may be renewed in year 02.

In 2017, the School of Creative Arts is moving to new state-of-the-art facilities in downtown Windsor, based in the historic Windsor Armouries building, with easy access to Detroit’s vital cultural institutions and artistic districts.
