This workshop is for researchers who will produce a thesis in practice-based or practice-led disciplines at Sussex.
Wednesday 12 June 2013, 14:00 – 16:00
Creativity Zone, University of Sussex
This new workshop, designed for second and final year practice students, aims to help you deal with the challenges of writing in practice research. Led by Sally Jane Norman, Professor of Performance Technologies (Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts) who regularly assesses and supervises practice PhDs, together with creative practitioner Doctor John Ferguson (Kingston University), the workshop will offer practical pointers and suggestions, and above all an open forum to discuss your questions.
There are no generic answers, but formulating key concerns can provide useful insights.
- How do you go about writing a thesis when your research is practice-based/led/informed?
- How can you optimise the time you spend on the writing and practice components of your PhD?
- How can you ensure that the thesis format and structure are in line with an officially allocated “practice percentage”?
- What are the differences between writing a thesis and writing a thesis as a practice PhD student?
- What is the role of the thesis in relation to the research practice?
