Description


Bringing together student, academic, and institutional perspectives, this book casts light on the unique and challenging form of the doctoral thesis in the creative and performing arts, where the written text is combined with a creative/performed text, to present a unique contribution to research. It provides insights into the nature of doctoral writing across a wide range of creative and performing arts disciplines and enhances understanding of student experiences of doctoral writing. Academic perspectives are provided: that of the examiners, the supervisors, and the institutions. The book also investigates the nature of successful research in these disciplines.
