Creating Friction: an interdisciplinary creative practice postgraduate conference
Location: Culture Lab, Newcastle University
Time/Date: 22nd April 2010, 09:00 – 20:30
With the expansion of creative possibilities for study within University settings, it is increasingly imperative that we question the borders between the creative and critical components of postgraduate study. How do the different modes of creative practice intersect with the world of traditional academia? How does a creative practitioner function as a PhD candidate? What methods can be used for assessment? What role does the accompanying critical thesis play in the context of the creative
work produced? How does creative practice differ from fieldwork? What frictions are created by interdisciplinary work?
This one-day seminar aims to provide a space for creative practitioner PhD students to come together and discuss the relationship between their practice and research.
Keynote Speaker: Dr Sharon Kivland, Sheffield Hallam.
Registration fee is £15 which includes refreshments, a light lunch and ticket to the NCLA talk by Andre Brink at 7pm.
