Sound Art and the Extended University

Knowles, Julian D. (2007) Sound Art and the Extended University. RealTime: +onscreen, p. 24.


The arts in Australian universities have been under a period of sustained challenge since the mid 1990s. As federal funding to universities has decreased in real terms and pressure has been put on universities to differentiate themselves and compete, most vice-chancellors have paid very close attention to the discipline mixes on offer in their institution and have made substantial moves to reduce the mix and to focus resources on their perceived strengths in the market for which they are seeing high demand. This commissioned article examines the effects of these dynamics on the study of sound-art in an Australian university context.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
