Abstract or Description

In this paper I consider some of the problems and challenges of negotiating creative practice in today’s Academic environment from the perspective I know and work in, at Goldsmiths, University of London, a College internationally reputed for our Arts and Humanities teaching, practice and practice research. As a theatre and performance specialist I contextualise my thinking in a brief history of Drama Departments in the UK and their shift in the last three decades to embrace Performance Studies. I consider how this has affected pedagogic design and delivery. I finally discuss these themes within the overarching consideration of being a research-intensive institution and what this means in the UK today.
Keywords: creative practice, performance studies, higher education, arts and humanities teaching, pedagogic design
