a methodology and two expositions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article presents a methodology for the exegesis which has been generated through supervisory practice and experience and writer-researchers’ practices of producing PhD theses in creative writing research, with two exemplary, first person descriptions by HDR candidates of their PhD research journeys so far. The proposal here focuses on the creative and cognitive practices brought into play in carrying out each PhD project, asserting that ‘exegetical thinking’ is enmeshed in both creative writing and research processes in a growing ‘spiral’ of complexity and innovation as connections are made between the thesis components in producing original research.
