Reseña del editor
This book is the second, extended edition of the first of its kind. It is a resource to help people artists, teachers, administrators, and students assess and compare programs for a new PhD in Studio Art. "A PhD in art is inevitable, and so best to explore the implications of this seemingly inevitable development." -David Carrier, Champney Family Professor, Case Western Reserve University/ Cleveland Institute of Art. "I find this book to be fascinating and thought-provoking material." -Andrew E. Hershberger, Associate Professor of Contemporary Art History, Bowling Green State University. "It is especially timely that a book addressing the many concerns regarding this degree should appear in the US market." -Tom Huhn, Ph.D., Chair Visual & Critical Studies, Art History School of Visual Arts, New York. "The book is organized as a constructive debate that encourages people to engage with the issues." -Lynette Hunter, Professor of the History of Rhetoric and Performance and Director UC Multicampus Research Group in International Performance and Culture, University of California Davis. "This book furthers the debate by opening various windows on the discussion of studio art." -Harold Linton, Chair Department of Art and Visual Technology, College of Visual and Performing Arts George Mason University. "We are in the midst of a paradigm shift.The range of viewpoints presented in this collection will help spur the debate and contribute to clarifying what is at stake." -Saul Ostrow, Chair, VisualArts and Technologies, Cleveland Institute of Art

Art should find it's own place in university not denying its own complexity, by being art and not forcing itself to become anything else.
But Elkins does not let this phase him. His invited authors ramble all over, they republish older presented papers, they cherry pick to back up dubious claims. Most of the book centers on the attempts at starting PhD programs in the UK or in Europe. The US component is by George Smith, who believes current undergrad and graduate progams do not provide enough theory. I find this odd considering that it appears he has no MFA degree and that his own PhD institute does not appear to be run by any University. But we'll let that go. The main problem with the book was it read more like a ragtag collection of conference papers than any coherent attempt at discussing PhD's in the visual arts and what that might mean. Ultimately the book comes off as the cry of generalists or those with education degrees who have little understanding of how the art world really works or who view PhD programs as a continuation of a little cash cow. What is being discussed in art schools, at least in those I'm familiar with in North America, is the ridiculousness of any PhD in visual arts. A better book will have to be written before they warm up to the idea.
