Perspectives on Research Assessment in Architecture, Music and the Arts : Discussing Doctorateness
about this item
In creative fields such as architecture, design, music and fine arts, research has been developing over the last two decades, with new forms and modes of study emerging. This book is an attempt to create a broader arena for discussion on doctorateness by establishing a framework for its application to creative disciplines. International experts in the various fields, from Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, the Netherlands and the UK cover key topics. One group of contributions offers general frameworks for further conceptualising doctorateness in the fields in question. It is followed by contributions that describe and discuss various experiences, cases and concerns in the production and assessment of doctoral research. The third group of contributions asks the question about how the ongoing, profound changes in academia are going to influence the concept of quality in both doctoral process and product.
