The interdisciplinary Master of Transnational Arts aims to provide opportunities for students to undertake part of their research and practice within a transnational context of cultural exchange. Students are encouraged to develop a range of culturally sensitive understandings and highly experimental modes of representation to help facilitate the communication of ideas to international audiences. Through their individual arts practice, students explore ideas of translation between languages, - Chinese into English, English into French etc.; between art forms; and between various knowledge domains. The various methodologies of translation are developed as imaginative models for transformation, yielding new genres of being and new regimes of representation in the Arts. Through experimental teaching and projects led by local and international artists, academics, curators and writers, this degree seeks to develop each students capacity to create new networks, understandings and appreciations of international contexts - particularly in Asia, South America and Europe - in preparation for Artist residencies, exchanges, exhibitions, arts-based research and collaboration. This course also prepares students for re-inventing research paradigms within arts-based PhD and doctoral research programmes.
