Postgraduate Research Supervision

Transforming (R)Elations


Alison Bartlett and Gina Mercer

This highly accessible anthology concerns itself with the relationships between postgraduate research candidates and their supervisors. It is a collection of immense depth and diversity including nearly fifty contributors, candidates and supervisors (many writing collaboratively), reflecting upon the pleasures and perplexing dynamics of supervisory relations. Their lucid understandings emerge through personal anecdote, critical reflection, and pedagogical theorizing. As candidates and supervisors, they recognize the impact of personal, cultural, and institutional histories and desires. This enterprising anthology proposes creative and productive alternatives to the prevailing models. It is a generous and engaging text, vital reading for candidates, supervisors, researchers, mentors, and tertiary educators.
