Children's Book Illustration

In Cambridge School of Art there exists a vibrant and growing community of researchers at PhD level; in the area of children's book illustration, the topics for these PhD research degrees are linked to staff expertise together with student interests, and reflect the increasing potential of practice-based PhD studies; informed by students particular discipline, they are asked to critically contextualise their work at a high level, clarify both the theoretical and practical research-based enquiries, and produce distinctive contributions to the research field. The Cambridge School of Art provides various research forums that accentuate the discursive and interdisciplinary nature of research, including several research clusters which hold regular seminars and informal presentations for postgraduate and research students, as well as the Centre for Children's Book Studies. The School has close links with a number of children's book publishers, Bologna Children's Book Fair, Kettle's Yard, and the University of Cambridge's Centre for Research into Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities (CRASSH), amongst other partnerships including those with international institutions; various exhibition and conference opportunities are available to PhD students studying in the area of children's book illustration, and participation in such opportunities is strongly encouraged; these subject-specific aspects of our research programme are enhanced and augmented by the University-wide research and training sessions.
