Birmingham School of Art

Dr Sian Vaughan (nee Everitt) is currently a Senior Lecturer in the School of Art, Research Degrees Co-ordinator for Art and Design, and the Keeper of Archives for the Faculty’s Art and Design Archives.

Sian is an art historian by training with research interests in the interpretation and mediation of engagement with art through the modalities of the archive and public art. More recently her work has questioned creative research practices and prompted a wider consideration of the doctoral student and supervisor experience. She enjoys working collaboratively and across disciplines.

She has previously worked teaching art and design history in Further and Higher Education. Her doctoral research was in the field of public art: "Defining Roles: the work of the Public Art Commissions Agency (PACA) 1987-1999" (UCE 2007). She has also since completed a Masters in Education, focusing on the research student experience and was recently awarded Senior Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.
