Provoking the Field

International Perspectives on Visual Arts PhDs in Education

Provoking the Field invites debate on, and provides an essential resource for, transnational arts-based scholars engaged in critical analyses of international visual arts education and its enquiry in doctoral research. Divided into three parts--doctoral processes, doctoral practices, and doctoral programs--the volume interrogates education in both formal and informal learning environments, ranging from schools to post-secondary institutions to community and adult education.
 
This book brings together a global range of authors to examine visual arts PhDs using diverse theoretical perspectives; innovative arts and hybrid methodologies; institutional relationships and scholarly practices; and voices from the field in the form of site-specific cases. A compendium of leading voices in arts education, Provoking the Field provides a diverse range of perspectives on arts enquiry, and a comprehensive study of the state of visual arts PhDs in education.

Reviews

"[Provoking the Field] illustrate[s] the wide variety and richness of arts-based research undertaken as part of international doctoral programmes in education. . . . One strength of this publication is the impressive range of nationalities that are included in the book; examples of doctoral programmes are represented from all parts of the globe. It is clear that attempts have been made to avoid an ethnocentric perspective on the subject. . . . This book will be important to those doctorate students who intend using visual arts methods to explore educational research questions. . . . New Ph.D. supervisors would also find Provoking the Field a valuable asset when developing their own supervisory practice."
