Aims and Outcomes
This module aims to:
- to enable students to develop and test creative, critical and expositional methods of research in response to a set of research questions by producing a substantial written thesis AND/OR producing and documenting a substantial creative project. This project will normally lead to a public art work that will be performed/exhibited as part of a public arts festival in and around the Great Hall Complex.
On successful completion of this module, students will be able to:
- prepare, organize and deliver, in response to specific research questions and according to a specific research method, a written thesis; and/or a creative work or works in the form of some kind of electronic media, or a portfolio, or a public performance or exhibition.
- understand the relevance of this thesis and/or creative work or works in the context of contemporary arts research.
- begin a doctoral research or doctoral practice-as-research scheme
The bibliography is by definition specific to the individual research project of each student as determined through the assessed essay submitted for LICA 401 Sources Study in Contemporary Arts and refined through the assessed presentation for LICA 402 Research Methods in Contemporary Arts.
