Description:

What is it that undergraduates are afraid of today? And how do these fears manifest themselves in their attitude towards professional practice and academic study? Can the development of a critical disposition help students to overcome their fear of taking risks? This paper maps out and explores students’ fears in relation to critical studies and professional practice through a series of visual and written activities. The resulting data is analysed using a phenomenographic approach and the paper concludes with a consideration of the implications of student anxieties for the future of cultural studies within art and design courses.
