Principal Investigator: Professor Jonathan Harris (University of Southampton)
Collaborators: Tate Liverpool
Duration: From 2012 to 2018

A seven year doctoral research programme bringing together Winchester School of Art and Tate Liverpool. Four PhD students are examining the creative art and design communities associated with and generated by pop culture in Britain and its many legacies since the 1960s. They will study the rise of Pop as British and world society changed dramatically in that decade, creating new communities who made, consumed and transformed art and daily life over the next forty years.
