Professor Lisa Stansbie

Dean of School

Dr. Lisa Stansbie is a practising artist whose work crosses the disciplines of film, sound, sculpture, installation, photography and digital practices. Stansbie has undertaken residencies, commissions and exhibited across Europe and the U.S.

Stansbie’s PhD Zeppelinbend: Multiplicity, encyclopaedic strategies and nonlinear methodologies for a visual practice, was the first ever entirely web based PhD in the U.K. As a researcher recently submitted to the REF 2014, her outputs were a combination of exhibition based art practice and publications. The book chapter ‘Establishing the Cybertextual in Practice based PhD’s’. In: SAGE Handbook of Digital Dissertations and Theses focused on UK based PhD study in art and design (linked to practice-based research) tracing the historical developments of formats of submission. She has a continued interest in practice-based research and forms of digital publishing.

PhD Supervision

Research Interests

Recently Lisa's research has been based around The Arts and Sport, and has resulted in a number of national and International exhibitions, book chapters and papers. Such collaborative research seeks to challenge discipline boundaries and provides opportunities for joint research funding and projects.

This recent work investigates the narratives, processes, rituals, performativity and apparatus of sports. The work combines both object based sculpture, photography, drawing and films that research sport by a direct involvement and performance within it.
