 Researcher’s Papers Streams 


Examining the texts for psychological, sociological, and ideological meaning, attempting to make some sort of statement about what those texts signified to particular people in particular cultures at  particular historical moments. 

Note: for us, the term ‘texts’ covers written and spoken word, visual and moving  images, live and recorded performances.  


We study the historical, economic, and political contexts shaping how a text is/was imagined, created, and distributed. We do this to better understand how this text came to influence (or not) a    particular culture via adoption, consumption, circulation, and often, consumer re-creation. 


We analyze people as they create, consume, interact, and circulate around texts. Sometimes we ask them their thoughts; other times we watch them as they “do their thing.” Often, we try to remember  that as researchers who are also people, “we” are part of “them.” 

The followings are the selections of topics required to choose when submitting the abstracts: 


1. Art process as research
2. Creating arts using research
3. Artistic procedure for research

 Writing an Abstract

 Why do we write abstracts? 

Abstracts are important parts of reports and research papers and sometimes academic assignments. The abstract is often the last item that you write, but the first thing people read when they want to have a quick overview of the whole paper. We suggest you leave writing the abstract to the end, because you will have a clearer picture of all your findings and conclusions. 

How do I write an abstract? 

  • First re-read your paper/report for an overview. Then read each section and condense the information in each down to 1-2 sentences.
  • Next read these sentences  again to ensure that they cover the major points in your paper.
  • Ensure you have written something for each of the key points outlined above
  • Check the word length and further reduce your words if necessary by cutting out unnecessary words or rewriting some of the sentences into a single, more succinct sentence.
  • Edit for flow and expression.


What makes a good abstract? 

A good abstract

  • uses one well-developed paragraph that is coherent and concise, and is able to stand  alone as a unit of information
  • covers all the essential academic elements of the full-length paper, namely the background, purpose, focus, methods, results and conclusions
  • contains no information not included in the paper is written in plain English and is understandable to a wider audience, as well as to your discipline-specific audience
  • uses the language of the original paper, often in a more simplified form for the more general reader
  • usually does not include any referencing
  • in publications such as journals, it is found at the beginning of the text, while in academic assignments, it is placed on a separate preliminary page. 

Informative abstracts

You must get the essence of what your report is about, usually in about 250-300 words. Most informative abstracts also have key parts in common. Each of these parts might consist of 1-2 sentences. The abstract should be submitted in Word (NOT pdf) to emails: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Abstract EXAMPLE

Key Parts

Metalinguistic awareness contributes to effective writing at university. Writing is a meaning-making process where linguistic, cognitive, social and creative factors are at play. University students need to master the skills of academic writing not only for getting their degree but also for their future career. It is also significant for lecturers to know who our students are, how they think and how we can best assist them. This study examines first-year graduate Indonesian and international art students as writers of academic texts in a multicultural setting at the Graduate School of Indonesia Institute of The Arts Yogyakarta. A questionnaire and interviews were used to collect data about students’ level of metalinguistic awareness, their attitudes toward, expectations for, assumptions about and motivation for writing. The preliminary results of the research show that students from different cultures initially have different concepts about the academic genres and handle writing with different learning and writing styles, but those with a more developed metalanguage are more confident and motivated. The conclusion can also be drawn that students’ level of motivation for academic writing positively correlates with their opinion about themselves as writers. Following an in-depth multi-dimensional analysis of preliminary research results, some recommendations for writing instruction will also be presented.
