Abstract

The idea that the exegesis and the creative work are kept separate in a research degree submission dates back to early non-traditional doctorates in the Australian context. But, while an increasing number of research publications worldwide use fragmented structures and strategies which blend scholarly and non-scholarly approaches, what are the chances of honours, masters and doctoral students succeeding under examination with submissions that weave together exegetical and creative components? This paper examines the expectations universities have for their creative writing research submissions, and the strategies examiners may use in examining exegeses woven into the subject artefact they talk about. Exploring how examiners might read woven works, this paper surveys, especially, reader-response theory as developed by Wolfgang Iser and others. Keywords: Non-traditional PhDs, HDR examination, reader-response theory, Wolfgang Iser
