Prior to his appointment to RMIT Marcelo Stamm has been Head of a School of Philosophy since 2005 and became Chief Investigator of two Australian Research Council Discovery Grants in 2007 and 2008, investigating the ‘conditions of creativity’ and accounts of a ‘philosophical topology’ by Kant and Wittgenstein – researching into both the continental and analytic philosophical traditions.

To that end, Marcelo Stamm also operates since 2013 as the Director of RMIT’s European Practice Research Symposia (PRS) which represent the core of RMIT’s doctoral research innovation and provide conspicuous evidence of RMIT’s leadership in creative practice research.
