The course Research in the arts (7,5 hp) is devoted to artistic research, or research in the arts, using as its main material the new anthology, The Routledge Companion to Research in the Arts. The book, the first of it’s kind, deals with a multitude of aspects of artistic research: general and discipline-specific; philosophical, political and practical. The course will provide insights into the ongoing discussion on the nature, importance and position of artistic research within and outside academia.
The course will take place in spring 2011. There will be five sessions (all Thursdays): January 27 (double session), February 24, March 24, April 28, May 26.
All of the 23 chapters will be studied and discussed. Following each session, the participants will write reflections on the chapters discussed. These reflections will be followed up in the following session.
The course will be taught mainly by the Visiting Professor at the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts at the University in Gothenburg Henk Borgdorff, himself a co-author of the book. Other contributors to the book will participate in some of the sessions. The course is open to all doctoral candidates of the faculty (as well as to the candidates enrolled in Konstnärliga forskarskolan as far as the number of participants allows) but it is especially recommended to first-year doctoral students. The maximum number of participants is 15. Course leader: Professor Sverker Jullander (firstname.lastname@example.org).
