Project title ATRL - Arts Technology Research Laboratory
Summary The Arts Technology Research Laboratory (ATRL) is an interdisciplinary, postgraduate research centre of the School of Drama, Film and Music at Trinity College Dublin designed to explore the emergent fields of creative arts practice and new technologies. ATRL senior scholars and postgraduate researchers will innovate unique practical methods while pursuing critical, historical and theoretical research in order to engage future art forms of digital culture that are networked, interactive, multimedia, hybrid, virtual, immersive and ubiquitous. ATRL draws on the synergies of the School of Drama, Film and Music’s performance and time-based disciplines to re-imagine film and video, music and sound production, and theatre, dance, live art and installation in a digital environment. In collaboration with the Schools of Computer Science and Engineering, ATRL brings the scientist, engineer, artist and scholar into dialogue to offer the widest range of experimental opportunities and academic rigour in the practice and study of digital culture and the arts.

Project title PhD in Digital Art and Humanities
Summary The Structured Ph.D. in Digital Arts and Humanities (DAH) will create the research platform, the structures, partnerships and innovation models by which fourth-level researchers can engage with a wide range of stakeholders in order to contribute to economic development on the island of Ireland and provide new professional opportunities for graduates. DAH will firmly establish a new research agenda by training the first cohort of PhDs in Ireland in the new technologies, methodologies, and theories for digitally-mediated arts and humanities, and by asking new and bold research questions which would have been inconceivable before the development of these new technologies and paradigms. The Structured PhD in DAH is a four-year programme that will provide world-class training in innovative models of arts practice and theory, and humanities research, archiving, and pedagogy. The programme will promote advanced practical and academic research in the application of new media and computer technologies in the arts and humanities. DAH will be multi-disciplinary and inter-institutional and will provide coherent exposure to transferable skills in digital content creation that will be enabling, academically rigorous and commercially viable.
