We invite applications for an interdisciplinary PhD studentship entitled “Conceptualising interactive & immersive fictional story design founded in film and TV”. The studentship is funded as part of the XR Stories project at the University of York and the successful candidate will be based in the Department of Theatre, Film, Television and Interactive Media and work in strong collaboration with the British Film Institute (BFI).

The Story Seeds project will explore ways to gather and retell visitor experiences of outdoor cultural heritage sites in the UK and will work with participants to design sensor-based, tactile interactive artefacts to capture their experience of a physical site as narrative – a personal memento of their visit to take home.
The project asks questions about the ways we can generate storied experiences of visits, offering novel ways to capture and share them as interactive artefacts that draw on the outside world (e.g. weather conditions, location, news feeds) as well as visitors’ interpretations and emotions. It reflects on the impermanence of human memory, the challenges of maintaining digital technology in heritage contexts, and will support future research on longitudinal evaluation of cultural heritage experiences.
This one year MSc by Research in Interactive Media is funded by XR Stories. The studentship will cover the tuition fee at the home/EU rate (£4,407 in 2020/21) and a stipend at the standard research council rate for one year (£15,285 in 2020/21). International (non-EU) candidates are also welcome to apply but will be required to pay the difference between the UK/EU and international tuition fee rates (approximately £17,000).
The application deadline has passed.
