Pushing Boundaries in Postgraduate Supervision. James Burford IntroductIon Does doctoral study feel like it used to?
Judging by the tumblrs, blogs and Facebook posts I read, as well as snatches of conversation across the tearoom, it would seem that doctoral students are increasingly sore, stressed and feeling disappointed, anxious and guilty. As part of this broad project, I believe that it will be important to understand the changing role that writing and be com ing a writer are playing in the contemporary constitution of doctoral students.
It now seems older questions about doctoral writing may have been replaced by a growing list of them: How can I maximise outputs? Which journal is most highly ranked?
Is it ISI listed? And crucially, will the paper come out before I graduate so I can put it on my CV? The boundaries I seek to exert pressure on in this chapter are those which have emerged around the study of emotion in higher education and postgraduate 69 DOI: In sum, I believe that taking up affective practice could invigorate the study of doctoral education, and contribute to the de-pathologisation, and de-individualisation of emotions within it.
This chapter is structured as follows: First, I briefly review the ways in which higher education researchers have understood, and worked with affect.
Following this, I introduce my own doctoral study.
I present an analysis that focuses on one case of a third-year doctoral student. I conclude the article with reflections on the implications of this discussion for the practice of doctoral supervision.
Yet what seems to be missing at this stage of the conversation is an engagement with questions about how qualitative researchers might seek to trace affect, and what it might mean for the kinds of tools we take up to analyse it.
The first characterisation I would make of the field of higher education is that empirical research on the emotions remains thin on the ground. At the conceptual level, however, 70 DOI: Existing studies have tended to take up a defensive orientation in order to assert that the emotional is indeed a legitimate and interesting object of social inquiry.

While there has been an increase in interest in the emotions and bodies of higher education subjects, in general this work has tended to construct affects as psychological states experienced by the individual.
In this chapter I am proposing an alternative approach, which might resist the individualisation and pathologisation of doctoral emotions.
For example, rather than reading so-called negative affects such as depression or shame as individual maladies, I am interested in how these affective scenes might instead be described and interpreted as in social circulation, and as a consequence relational, economic and political.
This requires a movement away from the restricted palette of emotions that are so often taken up in studies that use the conceptual tools of psychology.
I am more interested in addressing the complexity of affective performances, scenes and events. A final characterisation I would make of current studies relates to their analytic approach to affective phenomena.
However, this has little congruence with the unannounced ways affect plays out in everyday life. What is required is a movement towards considering affective accounts through scenes, events and figures instead.
In sum, I argue that a new approach to affect in higher education is called for; one which can deal with specific affective phenomena, and trace their consequences. It is to one such promising approach that I turn next.
A new social science understanding In this work, Wetherell focuses on finding a pragmatic route for thinking about affect and emotion for social research, especially for researchers drawing on empirical material.
Three lines of approach are at the core of affective practice: The first is flow. As such, the affective activity located in our body is constantly being constituted and reconstituted.
The second foundational concept of affective practice concerns the patterning of affect. The third foundational concept of her rubric is power.
This prompts her to ask questions about the regulation of affect, its uneven distribution and value. For example, who can take up what affective subject position?
And, how does affective value come to be assigned to some figures and not others? Combining aspects of discourse analysis with affective practice might encourage us to ask: What broader discourses and cultural subject positions may be evident?Graduate Tuition and Department Fees All students in a Graduate program at SVA will be charged tuition, health insurance, and a department fee (if applicable).

Then academic writing support is also a misnomer for a series of practices that are reliant on investment and the circulation of a research writing development capital, often a spin-off of other capital circuits like tuition fees, project funding and public budget.
Students’ knowledge of words impacts their achievement in all areas of the curriculum because words are necessary for communicating the content. Aeronautical English vocabulary is a major difficulty which impedes students’ progress in EAP (English for Academic Purposes) learning (usually conducted in native English countries) or ESP (English for Specific Purposes).
