Nick Wilson, CMCI’s newest (“full”) Professor, is celebrating his promotion with a clutch of books and articles just launched:
First is his co-edited collection The Palgrave Handbook of Creativity at Work (2018). Already nick-named “The big yellow book of creativity”, this features 30 research-based chapters from international writers and practitioners drawn from across the world. Nick is particularly pleased to to see fellow CMCI colleagues and alumni, Dr Roberta Comunian, Dr Jonathan Gross, Dr Birgit Wildt, Dr Brigid McClure, Dr Toby Bennett and Dr Laura Speers also contributing to this handbook.
Also, edited along with Dr Lee Martin, Nick has published a chapter entitled “Serious realist philosophy and applied entrepreneurship” in Philosophical Reflexivity and Entrepreneurship Research. This is published under the Routledge Rethinking Entrepreneurship Series.
Nest, Nick’s article “What’s the Problem? Cultural Capability and Learning from Historical Performance” is featured in the inaugural edition of a new journal in arts and humanities – Historical Performance (Indiana Press). This piece brings together Nick’s work on the early music movement, cultural entrepreneurship and cultural capability.
Finally, The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Historical Performance in Music (2018) is also just out (Cambridge University Press). Nick has contributed key entries on “Authenticity”, “Early Music (concepts of)”, and “Werktreue”.
Nick is currently on study leave from CMCI, working on his next book – The Space That Separates: Art, Experience & Human Flourishing for Routledge.
