Course Description

Northumbria and Sunderland Universities operate a collaborative AHRC Block Grant Partnership to support quality research and professional training. Two Professional Preparation Masters Studentships funded by the AHRC BGP will be available at Northumbria University. The Conservation MA programmes offer outstanding opportunities to pursue research within the MA, as part of the dissertation module. Two recent ground-breaking PhD studies have looked into the materials and techniques of artists Francis Bacon and Wassily Kandinsky, and the Paper Hatchery research facility brings together conservators and artists working with paper. Previous MA student projects include studies investigating biodeterioration, three-dimensional structural modelling of panel paintings and the challenges of documenting performance art. Conservation research is supported by access to extensive analytical facilities and expertise, including scanning electron microscopy and various spectrometry techniques. Conservation staff are active in developing innovative treatment methods in conservation practice and are leading researchers in artists materials and techniques, chemical analysis, preventive conservation, contemporary art, virtual reconstruction and haptic interaction in the cultural heritage context.
