Staff Profile

Sharon Harper

“After moving to the UK I spent several years in the commercial world working in marketing, before returning to study aesthetics, specialising in the relationship between art and celebrity. While studying for my PhD I investigated the production and distribution strategies employed by punk and new wave artists in downtown New York from 1976-1984. The crossover between art and commercial media is a particular area of interest for me, especially in the realm of commercial, commissioned photography. My current research involves a reappraisal of photography theory, advocating the development of genre and industry analysis.”

What are Course Maps and Module Descriptors?

Course Maps

A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.

Module Descriptors

A module is a self contained, individual unit of study. The Module Descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
