The Authored Voice: Emerging Approaches to Exegesis Design in Creative Practice PhDs
Ings, Welby
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v47 n12 p1277-1290 2015
In 2004, Robert Nelson noted in creative, practice-led research degrees that the exegesis had been reconceptualised as a cultural contribution to scholarship. He suggested that the challenge this posed was the need for writing to interface effectively with the nature and calibre of the creative work. A decade on from his observation, this article employs a case study to discuss emerging approaches to the exegesis in the work of graphic design doctoral candidates at AUT University in New Zealand. Accepting the multi-perspectival and multi-voiced nature of the practice-led exegesis writer, it discusses approaches to both structure and presentation. In so doing, it also considers specific issues, including negotiated relationships between the role and the nature of the designer's voice, systems of narration, and issues impacting upon both digital and print formats.
