The EVA London Research Workshop is one of the more unique elements of our Conference that we have been keen to develop over many years. Often Postgraduate Students, at Masters or PhD level, or Unaffiliated Artists may feel excluded from prestigious conferences until their research is complete and they can submit a full paper proposal. However apart from their Tutors, Supervisors and Mentors, EVA London provides an almost unique opportunity to submit projects which can be truly described as ‘Work in Progress’. With an audience of International Academics and acknowledged experts in a field, the Research Workshop presentations have often lead to very positive interest and support, and sometimes to future collaborations, or returning to EVA London a year later with a completed piece of Research and a successful Full Conference Proposal. In previous years the presentations have been very popular with our delegates and as Chair of the Research Workshops I can think of a number of occasions where an audience question that began “Have you thought of…” has lead to very exciting new lines of discovery. Sadly in 2020 we will miss that particular interaction, however, we have, as always selected an exciting, ground breaking and quite eclectic group of RW delegates. We hope that by publishing their papers here, either grouped together, around themes, or individually published, you will be keen to contact our RW authors to discuss and develop ideas, as if we had all been able to meet up together in July 2020.
