Kunskapsteoretisk praktik 3: Forskningssamarbeten, 7,5 hp


The course syllabus has been established 2015-08-18 by the Head of the
Department, Valand Academy. Department responsible: Valand Academy


The course is one of the four konstnärlig gestaltning / artistic practices research orien-tation courses under the general heading of “epistemic practices” that are offered to the doctoral students at Valand Academy. Epistemic Practices courses provide an op-portunity to learn about and perform within the specific framework of epistemologi-cal and research debate within, and with respect to, contemporary artistic and literary practices. The course is based on a series of monthly seminars and workshops at which the doctoral student present work in progress, respond to the work of peers, participate in specific skills workshops, and plan future programmes of guest re-searcher talks and events. The emphasis in Epistemic Practices Seminar Series 3 is on the development of collaborative publication/co-authoring practices in research; and projecting future research projects, collaborations and funding opportunities.

Entry requirements

Participants are required to have been admitted to third-cycle education at Valand Academy. If place is available, also doctoral students admitted at other departments at the University of Gothenburg or elsewhere can be participating.


The course – delivered through English – is a research seminar and workshop series providing a context for in-depth discussion of individual project work as it develops, and providing an opportunity to learn the protocols of working within a peer-community of early stage researchers.

Learning outcomes

After completing the course the student will be able to

Knowledge and understanding
• demonstrate an ability to discern the collaboration potentials within their own research prac-tice
• demonstrate an ability to identify the future potential for further research within the individu-al research project

Competence and skills
• demonstrate collaborative competencies in publishing or otherwise disseminating re-search outcomes and research processes
• demonstrate the ability to produce a research proposal with reference to a specific re-search funder or funding opportunity

Judgement and approach
• demonstrate the ability to recognise the points of connection between their research and the concerns of peers and of non-specialists
• demonstrate the ability to evaluate, and give critical feedback to research funding proposals of peers

Required reading

See separately reading list (established no later than six weeks before the course).


Written submission (unsupervised).
Oral presentation (supervised).

Oral presentation and response will be required in each of the monthly doctoral semi-nars as part of the assessment process, thus presence is required. In the second semes-ter the research will present a short account of their collaboration with a colleague(s) on a shared publication or dissemination process.

Two written submissions are required for presentation at the end of each Semester. At the last seminar of the first semester of study the doctoral student will provide a short paper critically describing the future research potentials following on from the primary research project (typically 1,500-2,000 words). At the last seminar of the se-cond semester of study the doctoral student will provide a research funding proposal based upon a specific research funding opportunity or the general practice of a re-search funder.

Grading scale

The course is graded with either of the grades Pass and Fail. In order to obtain Pass the doctoral student can, through the established tasks, show that the skills outlined in the course content and its goal statements are reached.

Course evaluation

The course is evaluated in written form. This is complemented by a meeting after the course where the doctoral students and the course leader gather for joint evaluation and discussion.
