Artistic research yearbook 2017

Research ethics and artistic freedom in artistic research

This is the Swedish Research Council´s 14th yearbook on artistic research.

The first three articles were written by three keynote speakers at the symposium on artistic research at Linnaeus University in Växjö 2016, which had the same theme and title as this yearbook.

The fourth article continues on from last year’s article on the career paths for artistic researcher with a PhD in Sweden. This time the writers follows up with a more qualitative study which highlight the scope of postdoctoral research at relevant HEIs.

The next article is an interview with the editor for the yearbook about the artistic research. There are also five reports on artistic projects that have received funding from the Swedish Research Council. These offer reflections on modernity, contemporary poetry, studies of dress, crossing boundaries between expressions on stage and finally baroque music. Comments are then made on the project reports by the Committee for Artistic Research within the Swedish Research Council.
