BSA and Research at Camberwell, Chelsea, Wimbledon
CRiSAP is pleased to announce that PhD researcher Syma Tariq has been awarded the British School at Athens Arts Bursary and Residency, a joint initiative by Research at Camberwell, Chelsea, Wimbledon (UAL). Taking place in the spring of 2020, she will produce an audio essay with the working title 'In Place' – a term taken from the Greek urban planner Constantinos Doxiadis, who built Islamabad, the capital city of Pakistan. She will focus on Greek-South Asian connections, legacies of migration and the role the antique plays in the ‘modern’ through oral histories, field recordings and research in the BSA collections.
The British School at Athens (BSA) and Research at Camberwell, Chelsea, Wimbledon run this joint initiative (2015/16 until 2021/22) annual arts residency in Greece, supported by a bursary and with studio and accommodation provided. The scheme furthers the BSA’s mission to support UK-based researchers within its broad arts, humanities, and social sciences remit.
