Emerging journals for artistic research
Kristin Bergaust presenting the artistic work Bar Candela
Yesterday and today I have been attending a seminar at Oslo University College. They have taking the initiative to establish a Nordic journal for research on and in the arts. I have been invited to be a member of the editorial board, and the intention of the seminar has been to kick-start work on the journal and discuss the profile. Yesterday I gave a presentation on my own work, concluding by raising a number of issues that I believe will be worthwhile considering in the further process.
This initiative follows on the heels of the newly established Journal for Artistic Research The first issue of JAR seems to be online now, although I haven’t seen it announced yet. Even if there’s a great degree of overlap between the scope of the two journals, I believe that there might be a need for both of them. JAR is highly international in scope, and I expect it to become an attractive channel for publishing, with a relatively high rejection rate. A Nordic journal might have a stronger focus on the artistic research in the Nordic countries, and provide an easier entry level. Also it seems like the Nordic journal might be bridging artistic research, research on arts within the humanities and to some degree pedagogy and didactics.comments powered by Disqus
