Rebecca Smith is an assistant lecturer and PhD researcher at the Liverpool School of Art and Design, Liverpool John Moores University. Her research interests include art history, contemporary art, digital cultures, performance art, politics, technological infrastructures and truth discourses. Rebecca’s PhD considers parafictions and contemporary art, by evaluating and investigating the conditions that have underpinned this trend. Her thesis uniquely intrinsically links contemporary art, politics and technology to provide a critical typology of parafictions conducted between 1998 and 2018. Rebecca’s research is published in the form of a peer reviewed journal article and will be published in the forthcoming book Dada Data: Contemporary Practice in the Era of Post-Truth Politics, edited by Sara Hegenbart and Mara-Johanna Kölmel. Rebecca has presented at numerous international conferences including RESAW 2019, Amsterdam, the Netherlands and the Association for Art History Annual Conference 2018, London, UK. Collaboratively, she is working with a group of fellow post-graduate researchers, CoLab to examine and illustrate what a PhD in the art and humanities constitutes. Alongside her research, Rebecca has teaching experiences at undergraduate and postgraduate level in the subjects of Fine Art, History of Art, Museum Studies and Research in Art and Design.
