Research Dossiers by Michel van Dartel

About Research Dossiers

When artists engage in research they often also need to share their research findings through journal publications. Getting one’s writing accepted in a journal, however, requires basic academic writing skills and the ability to set out clear and concise arguments
‘Research Dossiers’ provides Transmedia students with a crash course in academic writing and publishing. The course guides students in the practical exercise of writing a structured academic essay around an argument that can be supported by their own artistic research practice. In addition to writing a research proposal in the first year and a research dossier in the second year, the course includes plenary presentations, individual meetings and a peer-reviewing process.
