This panel will discuss the changing relationship between the academy and the creative arts, and the capacity of the arts to deliver research. It will consider the international environment in which developments are taking place, and the key government policies currently shaping the field. The current updating of NAWE’s Creative Writing Benchmark Statement will be considered, and research assessment procedures (REF in the UK and ERA in Australia) compared.
