    Attempting to teach theater in an English Literature course is a daunting prospect. A far cry from the highly individual experience of reading a novel or poem, theater is both a visual and communal...

    How Argumentative Writing Stifles Open-Mindedness.James Southworth - 2020 - Arts and Humanities in Higher Education 20 (2):207-227.
    A longstanding assumption within higher education is that there is a clear link between argumentative writing and critical thinking. In this paper, I challenge this assumption. I argue that argumen...

    Creativity is for Poets and Pop Singers, Isn’T It? Academic Perspectives on Creativity in Doctoral Writing.Steven Thurlow - 2020 - Arts and Humanities in Higher Education 20 (2):187-206.
    This paper investigates how eight academic research supervisors working in a Faculty of Arts at a research-intensive Australian university understand the notion of creativity in doctoral writing; both in relation to what it is and where it is found. This question was investigated qualitatively through interviews focusing on reader reception to three, short doctoral texts. A framework of indexicality and orientation was then used to move beyond the text-level and focus on the contextual influences surrounding the writing as it was (...)

    The heart of design studio teaching is traditionally linked to one-on-one teaching activities and to the exchange of feedback prompting many design educators to think it does not lend itself to onl...

    Defending Academic Freedom: Arts and Humanities Research as Constrained Writing.Mary Anne Francis - 2020 - Arts and Humanities in Higher Education 19 (2):207-224.
    This article notes that while there is a large literature lamenting increasing assaults on academic freedom, there is little literature to address ways in which it might be preserved. Sampling that writing, it finds some concern with protecting academic freedom in extreme scenarios, via discrete programmes, and generalised dissidence, but no discussion of determinate action applicable to all Arts and Humanities research. Defining academic freedom via the UK’s legal framework and elaboration in Judith Butler’s writing, the article inventorises significant assaults (...)

    Shifting Paradigms in Environmental Research Methods Through the Visual Arts.Abram W. Kaplan - 2020 - Arts and Humanities in Higher Education 19 (2):115-143.
    Arts-based research offers a potentially valuable approach for students trained in the positivist tradition of environmental issues to expand their repertoire. This article traces the experience of students in an undergraduate course that examines the US food system through immersive photography, using arts-based research as the core methodological theme of exploration and inquiry. The research approach to assessing student growth and integration of this model builds on both quantitative and qualitative designs, offering a triangulated look at interdisciplinarity. The article contemplates (...)

    An a/R/Tographic Exploration of Engagement in Theatrical Performance: What Does This Mean for the Student/Teacher Relationship?Drew Bird & Katy Tozer - 2020 - Arts and Humanities in Higher Education 19 (1):3-19.
    With an emphasis on self-study and the connections between the personal and the professional domain, the authors reflect upon their teaching practice on a postgraduate theatre-based course using the research methodology of a/r/tography. The aim was to develop understanding of teacher/student roles and how these can affect learning. Through researcher reflexivity, focus groups and questionnaires, data were captured from students/participants responding to a video of the researcher’s solo performance work. The research presents itself through three a/r/tographic renderings. First, the experience (...)

    Online Design Education: Searching for a Middle Ground.Katja Fleischmann - 2020 - Arts and Humanities in Higher Education 19 (1):36-57.
    At its heart, design is a studio-based discipline, which makes it difficult for design educators to adopt technology-driven changes into an online teaching and learning environment. Globally, few universities offer online undergraduate degree design courses, despite an overall growth in online higher degree curricula. Anecdotal evidence and limited research studies exploring the design educators’ view lament the potential loss of direct interactions between educator and design students in an online learning environment making it impossible to offer design education online. However, (...)

    Inquiry-Based Reading – Towards a Conception of Reading as a Research Method.Lina Katan & Charlotte Andreas Baarts - 2020 - Arts and Humanities in Higher Education 19 (1):58-75.
    Reading is an activity in which both researchers and students invest immense time and energy. However, reading is disregarded as a research method and generally assigned a marginal position as a mere supplement to empirical hands-on methods. In this article we argue that reading should be recognized as a method of inquiry. Based on qualitative interviews with 20 researchers from a humanities department, we explore how researchers read, and we show how reading contributes significantly to their knowledge production. We argue (...)

    Battle Battle: Engaging Diversity in the American Liberal Arts College.Joyce Lu - 2020 - Arts and Humanities in Higher Education 19 (1):101-112.
    Battle Battle: Engaging Diversity in the American Liberal Arts College examines the production of an Asian American hip-hop musical, directed by the author, at a private liberal arts college in the US. This article demonstrates how the production process was determined by the complex history of racial formation and relations in America. Those who were extremely attached to standardized Eurocentric practices of control in education could only read this complexity as disorder and found the process to be out of control (...)

    Theatricalization of Enterprise Education: A Call for “Action”.Gospel Onyema Oparaocha & Pokidko Daniil - 2020 - Arts and Humanities in Higher Education 19 (1):20-35.
    Changing environment requires not just creativity, but disruptive creativity. The traditional planning paradigm within business organizations heavily relies on long- and short-term forecasting in order to predict the future and plan accordingly. However, a large share of business development is now characterized by rapid changes, inconsistency and unpredictability. Taking that into account a key task for managers is to explore and innovate in chaotic conditions, but how can owner–managers, business leaders and the employees respond to such rapid changes without the (...)

    The Humanities And The University: Craig Calhoun Interviewed.Peter Vale - 2020 - Arts and Humanities in Higher Education 19 (1):91-100.
    In this interview Craig Calhoun talks about universities, the Humanities and his own research. Universities reinvent themselves in the face of societal and technological change. In the midst of this change, however, universities are charged with maintaining old ideals, with informing the public and creating opportunities for human development. The Humanities often bemoan these changes but they are ideally positioned to contribute to the changing university – especially through teaching – and so protect the traditional place of the university in (...)
