Riley, Howard – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2021
Whilst the faculties of literacy and numeracy are rightly recognised as worthy of pedagogical nurturing, this article champions a more venerable articulacy -- "visualcy" -- crucial to a healthy culture, arguing that the one domain of human inquiry which distinguishes the visual arts from other disciplines is surely that surrounding the…

Riley, Howard – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2019
This article addresses a question still frequently posed in the context of UK universities which offer courses in the visual arts: "Does the PhD research model of contributing new knowledge fit art, where there are no definitive answers and the main strength of the research is its ability to question?," answering in the positive by…

Stukenberg, Jill – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2017
The creative writing workshop, involving peer critique of manuscripts in progress, is deeply connected to many writerly habits of mind. As such, this article examines workshop as a signature pedagogy in creative writing. Through workshop, students develop awareness of their readers, understanding of how texts are created by readers and through…

Kornetsky, Lisa – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2017
Critique in undergraduate theatre programs is at the heart of training actors at all levels. It is accepted as the signature pedagogy and is practiced in multiple ways. This essay defines critique and presents the case for why it is used as the single most important way that performers come to understand the language, values, and discourse of the…

Mkhize, Nomalanga – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2016
This paper argues that the "institutionalisation" model used by universities to spearhead the intellectualisation of African languages is a non-starter for taking African languages in new creative directions. The major constraint for African language literary culture is that written output has historically been heavily bent towards…

Matcham, David – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2014
This paper examines the positioning of art practice as a mode of research through various legitimising practices. While frequently fruitful, the imperative to make art justify itself as a form of research in order to achieve legitimacy allows that in art which does not engage in negative dialectics to slip from view. The possibility of the kind of…

Stimpson, Catharine R. – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2014
A historic dialectic exists between the beautiful and the bestial. The bestial destroys the beautiful, but in a bloody miracle, the beautiful emerges from the womb of the bestial, the "terrible beauty" of which the poet W. B. Yeats wrote. The liberal arts, so often thought to dwell in a remote ivory tower, embody this dialectic. Wars and…

Pritchard, Matthew – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2014
In light of recent attempts to defend the role of the arts in education against the effects of policies based on utilitarian principles, this paper examines the arts educational writings and practical projects of Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) at Santiniketan in West Bengal, showing how they were motivated by a Romantic and Upanishadic philosophy…

Parker, Rosalind – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2014
Starting with an art exhibition which explored issues of religious identity, and with an illuminative case study of a "British Muslim" artist, this paper sets out a two-fold impact of approaching religious subjects from the angle of aesthetics. Firstly, the arts can be employed to open out categories of religious identity as non-fixed…

Gallucci, John A. – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2012
The article discusses the nature of humanistic knowledge. Analyzing the relation between aesthetic judgment, literacy and knowledge as defined by the French seventeenth-century Jansenist school of Port-Royal, the article argues that Port-Royal's interpretation of the enthymeme can be used to define the cognitive basis of aesthetic judgments in the…

Friend, Nicholas – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2005
Is art merely an adjunct to the serious business of life? Is there a secret ingredient that makes some art more worthwhile than other art? Does art have something to offer that makes its pursuit or purchase worthwhile, or is it simply an outlet for spare capital? Does art really matter at all? (Contains 5 figures.)
