I suggest that to properly understand current resistance within parts of the academy to practice-based doctoral programmes in the creative arts one has to understand the deeply entrenched character of the social division between intellectual and manual labour in our society. Victor Burgin's typology of doctoral candidates for visual arts programmes and tripartite structure of doctoral study is, I argue, hierarchical, privileging traditional humanities scholarship over studiobased methodologies of research.
