THE RESEARCH SCHOOL
Welcome to the Research School’s Workshop Thursday 12th March 9.30-12 in GLASHUSET
First an introduction to the Basic Course 1, Writing Artistic Research with Fredrik Nyberg (30 min) and after that a session on writing
abstracts / proposals for conferences with Mick Wilson (2 hours)
Basic Course 1: Writing Artistic Research
Fredrik will introduce the writing course and describe the schedule with the contents of the sessions, and answer on questions. the
course will focus on the candidates' own (writing) projects. Selected pieces of students' work in progress are carefully read and
discussed in detail on three occasions. These group gatherings are spread out during the late spring and early autumn. These text
discussions are designed to demystify the writing but also to make the individual student aware of qualities and weaknesses in their
writing practice. The course will then be divided into two distinct groups: A Swedish / Scandinavian branch. This section is headed by
Fredrik Nyberg. An English-language branch. This section is headed by Christine Räisänen.
Course dates:
Tuesday 21st April 9.30-16.00 (Fredrik & Christine)
Tuesday 19th May (Fredrik & Hanna Hallgren)
Wednesday 17th June (Fredrik’s group – in Swedish)
Thursday 18th June (Christine’s group – in English)
Dates for the Autumn to be settled.
Writing abstracts / proposals for conferences
In November 2015 PARSE will host an international conference with Susan Howe, Bruno Latour, Jalal Toufic, and Coco Fusco –and
currently we have no proposals from doctoral students submitted for peer review.
Mick Wilson will in this session cover the general principles of conference proposals/abstracts and also give the participants an
opportunity to evaluate examples of conference proposals from other contexts.
The session will be for 2 hours, 10:00 to 12:00
For more on the PARSE conference call see here - http://www.parsejournal.com/conference/

THE FACULTY SEMINAR SERIES SPRING 2015
Fakultetsseminariet våren 2015
Två seminarietillfällen kvar under vårterminen:
•
19 februari 1300, Glashuset, Akademin Valands gård (ingång från Chalmersgatan 4).
•
12 mars 1300, Glashuset, Akademin Valands gård (ingång från Chalmersgatan 4).
Ytterligare tillfällen kan läggas med anledning av PARSE, VR:s utvärdering eller på grund av andra behov.
19 februari
Om Mara Lees ”När andra skriver: skrivande som motstånd, ansvar och tid”
Den 19 februari gör vi en genomgång av en av förra årets intressantaste avhandlingar på det litterära området, Mara Lee Gerdéns När
andra skriver: skrivande som motstånd, ansvar och tid som Mara Lee med framgång försvarade under disputationen den 28 november.
Avhandlingen finns tillgänglig på https://gupea.ub.gu.se/handle/2077/37324. Tanken med seminariet är dels att ge fakultetens lärare och
forskare en möjlighet att diskutera avhandlingen utifrån ett metod- och teoriperspektiv, dels att tala om avhandlingen i kontexten av
författarens övriga konstnärskap och se den som en del i ett större konstnärligt och politiskt projekt. Vi rekommenderar därför
seminariedeltagarna att ha såväl avhandlingen som Mara Lee Gerdéns senaste roman Future Perfect aktuella i samband med
seminariet. Diskussant är fil dr Mikael van Reis.
Vi kan eventuellt förlänga detta seminarium och avhandla ansökningsprojekt.
Ansökningsseminarium den 12 mars
Seminariet är ännu öppet för förslag.
OBS! Ansökningsperioden till VR startar i år den 17 februari och stänger den 23 mars.
Som vanligt tar vi upp emot ansökningar in progress och förser dem med kompetenta kommentatorer från konstnärliga fakulteten eller
utifrån. Vi betraktar de här seminarierna som en viktig kollektiv läroprocess. Det betyder att även om man inte ansöker själv eller
opponerar – så kan man ha stor nytta av diskussionerna inför kommande ansökningar och projekt. Seminarierna har varit och är en
framgångsfaktor för forskningen inom fakulteten – och dessutom en rolig mötesplats för lärare och forskare från olika institutioner!
Kontakta oss med de projektidéer och texter som du vill lägga fram före den 30 januari! Du/ni (fler kollektiva projekt, tack!) kan posta
texter till Johan Öberg
Välkomna till en ny spännande termin!
Ingrid Elam, dekan
Johan Öberg, forskningshandläggare

NEW BOOK: EFVA LILJA: ART, RESEARCH, EMPOWERMENT: THE ARTIST AS RESEARCHER
Every person contributes, consciously or subconsciously, to the foundation of our culture. Our culture encompasses all that leaves an
imprint on our intra-human relations, here and now. An element in our culture is what we call art. Some choose to become artists and
produce art. What does it mean to see the world, to see education and research with the eye of an artist?
This book is written from an artist’s perspective. It discusses cause and effect, steering and empowerment in relation to artistic research
based on the Swedish system; it explores how the artistic researcher can enhance art, artistic education, markets and commercial
values. Increased knowledge makes constructive use of resistance and restraints; it empowers networks for cooperation. A field of
research in flux demands new strategies for taking a stand. Research is one way to do it.
Efva Lilja, Artist, Professor, Expert Advisor on Artistic Research at the Ministry of Education and Research in Sweden
