Beschreibungen

This book provides an extensive and original analysis of the way that written and spoken communication facilitates creative practice in the university art and design studio. Challenging the established view of creativity as a personal attribute which can be objectively measured, the author demonstrates instead that creativity and creative practice are constructed through a complex array of intersecting discourses, each shaped by wider socio-historical contexts, beliefs and values. The author draws upon a range of methods and resources to capture this dynamic complexity from corpus linguistics to ethnography and multimodal analysis. This innovative volume will appeal to students and scholars of discourse analysis, creativity, and applied linguistics. It will also appeal to art and design educators.

“Communicating Creativity is an impressive piece of work, original in both conception and execution, and distinctive in its contribution to the study of creativity. Combining quantitative and qualitative approaches using discourse analysis, corpus-based approaches and the use of more inclusive ethnographies, Hocking validates the important notion of emergent discourses, capturing how they grow holistically and organically to facilitate creative practice. In this respect, the work does valuably push back frontiers in the field.” (Ronald Carter, University of Nottingham, UK)
