Professor of Image in Context  (size: 0,5 ftu, scale 15)

Description organisation and place within the organisation:

The Hanze University is in the process of developing itself from an educational institution to a knowledge-based institution in an ever more interactive relationship with her environment. Conducting applied research in close collaboration with partners from the professional practice is an important element in this. The Hanze University conducts this research in six thematic research centres in which research of more than thirty research groups is brought together. The Centre of Applied Research and Innovation Art & Society is the latest addition to the six research centres.

The Centre of Applied Research and Innovation Art & Society is a partnership between Academy Minerva School of Fine Arts, Design and Pop Culture and The School of Performing Arts (Prince Claus Conservatoire and Dance Academy Noord-Nederland). The key issue in the research conducted by The Centre of Applied Research and Innovation Art & Society is the innovation of the professional practice of artists and designers in relation to the interaction between the artist and her/his environment. The Centre of Applied Research and Innovation Art & Society comprises three research groups: Lifelong learning in Music & the Arts (Prince Claus Conservatoire and Royal Conservatoire in The Hague); Image in Context and Pop Culture, Sustainability & Innovation (both Academy Minerva). The professor of Image in Context will be appointed by Academy Minerva, reports to the dean and participates in the Centre of Applied Research and Innovation Art & Society.
The research group

The research group Image in Context is connected to the bachelor and master programmes of Academy Minerva. The professor leads the research group and her/his own group of researchers, helps to give shape to the Research Centre and in doing so works closely together with the professors of the other research groups. The professor’s most important task is to set up and execute an inspirational research programme, in close collaboration with colleagues of the research centre, the school programmes and the professional practice. In this the professor is the link between the Academy and the professional practice.
