Hello, and welcome to the Critical Perspectives blog!


Hello, and welcome to the Critical Perspectives blog!

My name is Peter Muir, and I’m the moderator for this forum, as well as being one of your tutors for Critical Perspectives.

The Course Discussion forum is open to all Level 1 students, Pathway Tutors and the Critical Perspectives course team. It is intended to provide you with a place where you can ‘meet’ other students from this and other Levels, to discuss the course with them and support each other throughout the year. Do use it straight away to post a brief introductory message, letting other students know your previous academic and artistic experience and interests, and your thoughts about the coming year’s work. This will be a good way of getting to know each other and also getting used to the blog.

As you get into your work, we will also use this forum as a place to discuss the course materials you’re studying. If necessary, I will initially post some points to get the discussion going, but do feel free to raise issues and questions and introduce topics of your own as they crop up during your engagement with ideas and materials. What we hope is that this blog will provide a place for lively and interesting debate by all students. I hope you'll also use this forum to let us all know about current or forthcoming exhibitions and other events that might be of general interest, useful websites you've found, interesting books and articles you’ve read, and so on.

With very best wishes for a good year’s study,


Some general guidelines:

1 Discussion of themes and topics generated by study of the course material is encouraged. However, material which could be incorporated directly into a formal assignment brief is not permitted, and will be deleted from the blog.

3. Please keep subject headers brief and relevant to the thread of discussion.

4. All use of third-party material should be acknowledged, whatever the source. Messages should not be forwarded without the originator’s permission. This includes material provided by your tutors.

5. Messages should be relevant to Critical Perspectives and of potential interest to the majority of participants in the forum. Messages intended primarily for an individual should be sent to his or her mailbox.
