Faculty of Arts


Arts Scholars 2

Please note: this is archived course information from 2020 for ARTSCHOL 200.


This is a "Key Works and Research" course in which students engage with selected works from a variety of cultural and disciplinary backgrounds across the Faculty’s disciplines and research activities. Academic researchers will present seminar discussions on key works in their fields, and/or works specifically central to their own development as researchers. These may be standard books or articles that any expert in the field might teach or be expected to know, but they may also be lesser known works that seminar leaders have a particular interest in.

The course will also aim to interweave seminars by academic staff on the nature and process of their own "Arts Work" as researchers and writers. This may involve seminars on "works in progress" or reflective seminars on past work.

Students will also dedicate time to developing their own research practice, through practical sessions and guest seminars addressing the research process.

The overarching goal of the course is to orient students on the intellectual and professional disciplinary labour of “work in Arts” as experienced by active researchers, in order to develop active research projects of their own.

To complete this course students must enrol in ARTSCHOL 200 A and B
