University of Portland, Portland, Oregon, June 17-19, 2010

This interdisciplinary conference invites literary and cultural critics, historians, and scholars of modern religion and philosophy to explore a range of topics relating to the collision of belief and disbelief in the years between 1914 and 1945.

Creating Friction: An Interdisciplinary Creative-Practice Postgraduate Conference 22/04/2010, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

Tuesday, January 19, 2010 - 11:04am
Newcastle University

With the expansion of creative possibilities for study within University settings, it is increasingly imperative that we question the borders between the creative and critical components of postgraduate study. How do the different modes of creative practice intersect with the world of traditional academia? How does a creative practitioner function as a PhD candidate? What methods can be used for assessment? What role does the accompanying critical thesis play in the context of the creative work produced? How does creative practice differ from fieldwork? What frictions are created by interdisciplinary work?
