Harry Weeks is a Teaching Fellow in History of Art. He was previously a Postdoctoral Fellow of the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, University of Edinburgh (2015-16), and was awarded a PhD from the University of Edinburgh in 2014. His thesis, entitled ‘“A Unique Epochal Knot”: Negotiations of Community in Contemporary Art’, examined how art practices since 1989 have contributed to a rethinking of the concept of community.
Harry guest-co-edited a thematic selection of papers on the subject of 'Mediating Collaboration' in the Spring 2016 issue of Tate Papers. He is working towards a book based on his doctoral thesis, tentatively titled ‘Community and Art after Community Art’. He is co-convener of the KEYWORDS series of public events on art and language.
