Reflexive writing, 7.5 HECs

The course aims to deepen the participants' reflexivity concerning academic writing and focuses on studies of the relationship between scholarly/fiction writing and knowledge production. During the course, we will read and discuss feminist theory, focusing on writing as a research method. We will also work with exercises in academic and fiction writing in tutorial groups. In these groups, we will train ourselves to analyze both our own and others' texts.

In the course, we will reflect on and discuss writing from a variety of perspectives. Theoretically and practically, we will study the creative process, writing as a method, writing and ethics and the relationship between body and language. The course also allows us to discuss the relations between form and content, the production of truth/reality in scientific stylistics/discourses and the meaning of genres.

Lecturer: Hanna Hallgren, PhD in Gender Studies, poet and literary critic.

Exposition of Artistic Research: Publishing Art in Academia, 3 HECs

The workshop The Exposition of Artistic Research: Publishing Art in Academia introduces the pioneering concept of 'expositions' in the context of art and design research, where practice needs to be exposed as research to enter academic discourse. In the workshop reflective and methodological approaches to exposition writing from a variety of artistic disciplines will be discussed. The main aim of the workshop is to expose (‘translate’, ‘document’, ‘stage’) hands-on the ongoing projects of the participants as research, using the Research Catalogue software (which also functions as the backbone of the Journal for Artistic Research). With the aim of displaying practice in a manner that respects artists' modes of presentation, we will not use the traditional journal article format but instead offer a dynamic online canvas where text can be woven together with image, audio and video.

Participants are expected to bring to the workshop their laptop computer and their research material (texts, images, sound files, video's), both 'art works' (or the documentation of these) and additional material needed to 'expose', or present the research. The course consists of a four-day workshop.

Lecturer: Henk Borgdorff, Guest Professor in Aesthetics at the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts, University of Gothenburg.

Course date: May 28–31, 2012.

If you wish to enrol for this course, please send an email to: anna.frisk@konst.gu.se no later that April 15, 2012

The Interview as a Research Tool, 5 HECs

The course Interviews are used in many different kinds of research and for different purposes. This course focuses on methods and techniques for qualitative interviews as part of research work.

When you interview people used to be exposed in media, they often just repeat what they normally say about their work. They could be famous designers, artists, photographers, actors etc. So, how do you get below the surface when they describe their practice, world of ideas and work? This course focuses on other methods, than the scientific methods you normally learn as a doctoral student. The course is based on seminars with journalists for culture but also "digging" journalists as well as ethnographers and people from other fields.

In the seminars, they tell us about their practice, techniques and experiences from interviews, when they have met different people and situations. The course also includes a task where you should reflect on your own research concerning interviews in a longer text to exchange experiences with other doctoral students.

The course will take place during 2012 if there is at least 10 participants.

Course leader: Dr Kristina Fridh (kristina.fridh@hdk.gu.se).

The Living Landscape, 7,5 HECs

is a cross-disciplinary course, where meetings around work with environment and photography forms the basis for a dialogue between scientists working with climate and environmental problems, and artists, photographers, historians and theoreticians.

Two ongoing research projects at the School of Photography form the background of the course:
– Re-Photography: a Dialogue with History in an Arctic Landscape; and
– The Expedition: Investigations of Scientific and Artistic Attitudes around Scientific Travel
These projects have engendered an endeavour to develop the field of living landscape, environment, and photography. This field includes the tradition of landscape photography, and it offers rich opportunities for developing the role of art in the interdisciplinary work on some of the most pressing issues of our time – those concerning climate and environment.
The course purports
– to problematize the study of photographs in an international cross-disciplinary perspective, in relation to environment and ideas on the living landscape, and
– to develop and provide orientation and insight into the relationship between different areas of research, including artistic research, humanities, and environmental and natural sciences, in order to create conditions and opportunities for developing cross-disciplinary collaboration within the area of environment and living landscape.
