Required & Recommended Book List

Required Reading
2016-05-03 Interdisciplinary Research Sage Publications, Incorporated
ISBN 1506330487 ISBN-13 9781506330488

Interdisciplinary Research: Process and Theory provides a comprehensive and systematic presentation of the interdisciplinary research process and the theory that informs it. Presented as a step-by-step process, from the general to the specific, Allen F. Repko and Rick Szostak emphasize the dynamic nature of research, and provide students with tangible examples. The Third Edition reflects recent advances in interdisciplinary research, provides less coverage of foundational concepts (now covered in Repko's companion Introduction to Interdisciplinary Studies text), includes more examples from real student research projects, and adds more figures and tables to enliven the discussion.

Required Reading
2007-05-15 Re-Framing the Theatrical Palgrave Macmillan
ISBN 0230524656 ISBN-13 9780230524651

Alison Oddey takes us on a spectator's journey engaging with art forms that cross boundaries of categorization. She questions the role of the spectator and director, including interviews with Deborah Warner; the nature of art works and performance with artists Heather Ackroyd, Dan Harvey and Graeme Miller. She provocatively demonstrates the spectator as centre of the artistic experience, a new kind of making theatre-art, revealing its spirit and nature; searching for space and contemplation in a hectic Twenty-First century landscape.

Required Reading
1995-09 The reflective practitioner Ashgate Pub Co
ISBN 1857423194 ISBN-13 9781857423198

A leading M.I.T. social scientist and consultant examines five professions - engineering, architecture, management, psychotherapy, and town planning - to show how professionals really go about solving problems.The best professionals, Donald Schn maintains, know more than they can put into words. To meet the challenges of their work, they rely less on formulas learned in graduate school than on the kind of improvisation learned in practice. This unarticulated, largely unexamined process is the subject of Schn's provocatively original book, an effort to show precisely how 'reflection-in-action' works and how this vital creativity might be fostered in future professionals.
