Edward Street and Dorset Place

University of Brighton Edward Street, The University of Brighton is developing a building on Edward Street (a former American Express office), close to its city centre Grand Parade campus, to become a base for its photography and film courses.

The Edward Street development is adjacent to the University of Brighton’s Dorset Place building, which was completed in September 2013 and is home to the University of Brighton’s international students (UBIC).

ARENA (Arts Research ENrichment Activities) is a programme of research skills development in the arts and humanities across the University of Brighton and  Royal Holloway, University of London.

It is one of only 6 newly-funded organisation-led AHRC awards to support collaborative skills development.

The programme will equip selected PhD students and Early Career Researchers from both the University of Brighton and Royal Holloway, University of London, to select appropriate hermeneutic pathways when working with historical objects, artefacts, performances, live events and recordings.

It comprises 4 inter-related strands, addressing the digital transformation of sources, new ways of working within and accessing communities of practice, influences affecting the process of knowledge production, and experiential and creative ways of writing. In all strands, participants will deal with tangible data and case-study materials, producing outcomes combining interpretive insights with practical engagement.
