Delivery of the Level 5, 6 & 7 Contextual Studies provision for undergraduate and postgraduate students across Swansea College of Art.

The role of lecturer in Contextual Studies encompasses the research, writing and delivery of a programme of lectures to undergraduate and postgraduate students. Lectures are designed to facilitate the application of critical and analytical thought and a contextual exploration of arts practice and research.

Marilyn Allen is an artist, writer, theorist, and one half of the collaborative double act ‘matthews and allen’. matthews and allen’s research emerges as an experimental inquiry into collaborative voicing which typically problematises monovocality through a pluralisation of voices. matthews and allen’s methodological use of citationality evokes a state of indeterminacy wherein authorial precedence is unsettled and a disjunctive network of knowledge is established. Their praxis is one of critical disruption, incorporating humour, performance writing and a ludic approach to language.
