This Handbook brings together an international cast of experts to explore the social nature and context of creativity studies, focusing on methodology as a key component in advancing the social study of creativity. Two decades on from the pioneering work of Alfonso Montuori and Ronald E. Purser, the authors present a timely appraisal of past and present work in social creativity studies, and look ahead to future developments within this field. The authors collectively offer a rigorous examination of the methodological and empirical issues and techniques involved in studying social creativity. They examine the phenomenon as a form of communication and interaction within collaborative relationships; contending that creativity happens not within a vacuum but instead from a nexus of personal, social and contextual influences. This comprehensive work is organized in three parts, focusing first on the various methodological approaches applicable to the social in creativity studies. It secondly turns to empirical findings and approaches relating to the social nature of creativity. In the book’s final part, the authors offer reflections on the state of social research into creativity, pinpointing areas requiring further methodological scrutiny and empirical verification, and areas that may inspire further theoretical or applied work. Combining classic ideas with cutting-edge, emerging methods, this work provides a vital methodological ‘toolbox’ for investigators within social creativity.

In the last ten years there has been significant expansion of postgraduate education in the social sciences. A proliferation of new taught MA courses and substantial growth in the number of new research students have led to a renewed interest in the research process and the teaching of research methods. A number of existing methodology texts present a sanitized and idealized image of research which is both misleading and remains silent on many of the crucial issues facing postgraduates - issues to do with the research process rather than the development of competence in specific techniques. This edited volume seeks to remedy some of these deficiencies and to contribute to the emerging literature on the analysis of postgraduate education and training in the social sciences. It aims to do this by breaking new ground in the field of Politics and International Studies (PALS). It is the first book oriented specifically to postgraduates in the discipline focusing on themes, issues and methods in research training. The selection of new issues (progress through the years, teaching assistants, publications, jobs) plus a focus on approaches which conventionally receive little attention (metatheory, comparative analysis, archives, information technology) increases luther the distinctiveness and appeal of the book, making it an invaluable source and guide book for post graduate students.
