About Arts Lab

About Arts Lab

Arts Lab was founded in October 2009 and launched officially in February 2010, under its first Director, Professor John Caughie.  It has offices and a seminar room on Level 4 of the Sir Alexander Stone Building, 16 University Gardens.

The purpose of Arts Lab is to support and encourage research and interdisciplinary collaboration within the College of Arts, and to promote productive research links not only with other Colleges but also with the University’s great collections, viz. the University Library and the Hunterian. It also aims to promote collaboration beyond the University, particularly (though not exclusively) with the cultural sector in the City of Glasgow.

Arts Lab offers help to researchers through personal advice, through supporting research networks for the exploration of common interests, and through workshops and other events. It aims to identify and encourage areas of shared engagement on which future collaborative and individual research strengths might be built.  Arts Lab is conceived of as a space open to all colleagues, from postgraduates and early career researchers to senior scholars willing to share their expertise.

 Arts Lab is a member of the: Consortium of Institutes of Advanced Studies (CIAS), UK.
