Media and Communication Practice Research Symposium (PRS) Asia

The PRS is a PhD program and a supervisory model for professional practitioners to: reflect on their practice; frame their practice; and rigorously engage with the next phase of their practice. M&C initiated their program in 2016, joining an already established Architecture PRS that meets biannually in Vietnam.

PRS Creative Writing candidates will have a solid publication record as writers (so, mid-career or established practitioners) and appropriate academic qualifications. The PRS captures the knowledge embedded in specific practice, and considers how a practitioner situates themselves within a body of knowledge and a community of practice. The practice IS the research. Candidates begin with a practice and a proposition (rather than a topic and a research question).

Milestones are heavily structured and include symposia twice a year mapped to conventional PhD milestones where candidates present to a peer panel. Symposia are held in April and September in Ho Chi Minh City.
