Arts in the Alps

Arts in the Alps is a research training platform consisting of a Spring School and Autumn Conferences. It has been organized since 2017 by the SFR Creation at the University of Grenoble Alpes, in collaboration with many cultural and artistic partners.

This research platform addresses the issue of practices, thoughts and processes of creation from a multidisciplinary point of view, while promoting experimental approaches where artists and researchers collaborate together.

The primary intention of Arts in the Alps is to promote international scientific exchange. For example, we hosted Rebecca Schneider, Performance Studies from Brown University in the USA, Tim Ingold, Anthropology from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland and Helen Paris, Performance from Stanford University in the USA, Peter M Boenisch, Pr of European Theatre at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London in the UK, Barbara Erwine, building design consultant, researcher and writer at University of Washington, Department of Architecture in the USA, Jelle Koopmans, researcher at  the French Department and the Institute of Culture and History from the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands.

These etymological roots and routes of trace making are ever so present in the ways in which we practice our research in the arts, humanities and the social sciences.

La fabrique sensible des traces

We are thrilled to invite you to apply to our 2nd biannual “Arts in the Alps” Doctoral Spring School, that will address the traces that are materialized with and through practice based research experimentation.
