James Elkins – Illustrations to individual chapters in 2nd edition of ‘Artists with Phds’. May 2014.
Elkins, J.(2014) Artists with PhDs: On the new doctoral degree in studio art, 2nd edn, New York: New Academia Publishing
“Shaun Belcher’s visualizations of the issues surrounding ‘knowledge’ and ‘research’ in PhDs done ‘in’ and ‘through’ art practice are exemplary. I know this partly because I have seen some of them, and partly because he is an indefatigable and careful reader of the enormous literature on the subject. I have learned a lot from his comments and from the texts he’s found; he’ll be cited extensively in the next edition of the book ‘Artists with PhDs’.”
