Career Summary

Biography

Associate Professor Phillip McIntyre is a Communication and Media scholar who researches how novel and valued things are created by human beings. He seeks to answer a basic research question: what is the most rational way to explain how novel things are bought into being? In addition to this basic research question, he also seeks to answer an applied question: How can these explanations help to increase human kind’s ability to generate unique and valued products, processes and ideas?

A/Prof McIntyre's most recent book The Creative System in Action: Understanding Cultural Production and Practice, co-edited with Dr Janet Fulton and Dr Elizabeth Paton, was published by Palgrave MacMillan in 2016 and Creativity and Cultural Production: Issues for Media Practice was published by the same publisher in 2012. He is a current recipient of an ARC Linkage Grant entitled 'Creativity and Cultural Production: An Applied Ethnographic Study of New Entrepreneurial Systems in the Creative Industries'. He is the Group Leader of the Communication and Media Research (CAMR) group and is a member of the Hunter Creative Industries and Technology (HCIT) research centre.

He is the President of the Australian and New Zealand Communication Association (ANZCA) and is also a current member of the International Communication Association and the Association for the Study of the Art of Record Production (ASARP). He sits on the Editorial Board of the Journal of the Art of Record Production (JARP) and is the Conference Proceedings Editor for this journal. He is a Senior Editor for the Journal of Undergraduate Ethnography.

As well as having a research focus on creativity and innovation, A/Prof McIntyre also teaches media production and media studies courses in the Bachelor of Communication program. His most recent media production was a documentary series he co-produced on the wine industry for ABC Radio. He was the Head of Discipline for Communication and Media in the School of Design, Communication and Information Technology for the nine years and he was a visiting scholar at Leeds Beckett University in the United Kingdom in 2010 working with a research group in sound production in the Faculty of Information and Technology. He recently received an Excellence in Research Supervision Award and was selected by the PVC to be part of the inaugural Emerging Research Leader's program in 2011.

Previously Phillip McIntyre was involved in the music industry where he was a songwriter, performing musician, producer, audio engineer and manager for various musical groups dealing with promoters, record companies and distribution labels. He managed a section of a large music retailer and his work as a music journalist entailed interviewing and writing feature stories on a wide range of musicians including David Bowie, John Fogerty, Paul Kelly, Don Walker, Daniel Johns, Mandawuy Yunupingu, Tim Rogers and many others. For a short time he produced and presented a local music radio program on 2NUR FM as well as sitting on its Advisory Board for the last ten years. As well as running a production business for live performers a number of the music videos he produced, directed and edited have been broadcast on ABCTV and he continues to produce and engineer music recordings for local artists. He has taught in the Ausmusic Basic Music Industry Skills course at TAFE, which included Daniel Johns from Silverchair as a student in the songwriting course he taught, as well as teaching courses for the Music Industry Training Package at WEA. His doctoral research investigated the creative process of songwriters as cultural producers. He has since published widely in this area.

Research Expertise
Dr Phillip McIntyre is a researcher who has been part of the Emerging Research Leaders program at the University of Newcastle (UoN) and has stimulated research through his role as Head of Discipline in Communication and Media and through his international contacts particularly those at Leeds Beckett University in the UK. He was instrumental in forming the Communication and Media Research (CAMR) group at UoN where he is the Group Leader and recently received an Excellence in Research Supervision Award from the VC. He was awarded his PhD in March 2004 from Macquarie University, and has been publishing material in refereed publications and delivering his research to international audiences in conference settings.

His academic research is centred on the production phase of the communication process and the relationship between creativity and cultural production. For his doctoral thesis he tested and verified the systems model of creativity, developed by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, by conducting an extensive ethnographic study of popular music songwriting. This research involved participant observation facilitated by operating in the milieu of the music industry. It was triangulated with audience surveys, document analysis and a significant number of in-depth interviews with local, national and international level songwriters. Apart from this ongoing ethnographic research focus which he has extended to record production he also has an interest in the use of innovative research methods to examine the creative process, such as Practitioner Based Enquiry. As a result of these interests, a wide-ranging knowledge of the theories of creativity and over twenty-five years of relevant industrial and professional experience in all facets of the Australian music industry, which has given him ample practical experience in project management, sound and video production, and music journalism, he brings a valued set of skills which are directly applicable to his research.

Dr McIntyre has been successful with both external and internal grants. He was awarded a $20,000 Collaborative Research Grant in conjunction with Newcastle City Council and a $16,000 grant came from the ABC Regional Production Fund to produce a radio series for ABC regional radio. He is the holder of a $280,000 Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Grant and has established active and ongoing international research links with colleagues at Leeds Beckett University and Goldsmiths College in the UK. Dr McIntyre has published widely with a number of books, book chapters, journal articles and refereed international conference proceedings listed on his Researcher Report (link above). His book, Creativity and Cultural Production: Issues for Media Practice (2012) was published by Palgrave MacMillan. His collaboratively edited book Creativity as A System in Action (2016) is also published by the same company. The 2013 Humour Studies Network conference organiser, Dr Michael Meany, wrote recently that ‘Dr McIntyre’s standing as a world authority on creativity research is confirmed by his published research outputs and esteem factors such as invited keynote addresses. The most recent keynote address was given at the 19th Australasian Humour Studies Network (AHSN) Colloquium, Newcastle 7 - 9 February 2013. The colloquium theme of ‘Humour and Creativity’ was specifically chosen by the AHSN Review Committee due to Dr McIntyre’s position at the University of Newcastle and his national and international reputation.’

Teaching Expertise
A/Prof McIntyre undertook and completed the Graduate Certificate in Tertiary Teaching in 2005. His SFT and SFC scores have been consistently high and he has received commendations from the PVC of the Faculty Science & IT for his contribution to teaching in the Faculty. When Dr Phillip McIntyre commenced studying for his BA(CS) Honours degree as a mature age student at the University of Newcastle in 1994 he was asked to lecture at the same time into the Communication & Media Arts program at the University. Following this Honours year, he continued to lecture and tutor in a variety of courses at the University for the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, the Department of Leisure and Tourism as well as continuing to teach into the Communication and Media program. At this time he also taught into the BMIS Music Industry Skills course at the Hunter Institute of Higher Education (TAFE). He has also taught courses in the Music Industry Training Package for WEA. After achieving a full time continuing position at the University he has taught into a significant number of courses in the Communication and Media program. His teaching philosophy encompasses an observable congruence between theoretical understanding and professional practice. His emphasis on mentoring is premised on the realization that learning can be facilitated through interactions built on concrete experience, reflective observation, abstract conceptualization and active experimentation. This approach dovetails well with the overall PBL and WIL approaches espoused by the University. 

Administrative Expertise
A/Prof Phillip McIntyre was the Head of Discipline of Communication and Media for nine years. He currently sits on the School of DCIT Executive Committee and he is a member of the Faculty Research and Research Training Committee. He was the Program Convenor for the Communication and Media Honours Program. In this role he was the Chair, Bachelor of Communication (Honours) Review Committee for the Faculty of Science & IT in 2004. He also sits on the DCIT Research Committee. In 2005 he was a member of both the Faculty of Science & IT and the School of DCIT Research Committees. He has also been a member of the School of DCIT RHD Progress Committee and sat on the School's CT&L Committee, as well as being the Library Liaison Officer for the Department of CAMA between 1998 and 2001. He was also, for a short period, the Acting Head of Department in 2001. Until recently Dr McIntyre was the VC Representative on the Advisory Board of the University radio station 2NURFM and was Chair of the Peter Pickhover Trust Fund Committee that reports to that Board.

In his prior professional life Dr Phillip McIntyre's aptitude for project management and administration can be seen in his active involvement with the award winning band Supersonic. The most recent project Phillip was involved in for Supersonic ran from 2003 to 2004 and was primarily funded by a group of investors. Phillip was instrumental in negotiating this funding. The project involved the coordination and oversight of the recording, manufacture, release and promotion of a popular music single, an album of songs and a video, as well as the business management of the musical group involved. Phillip undertook the planning, budgetary and oversight responsibilities during this project period (2003-2004). The project required engaging a PR firm (AMB), a manufacturing plant (MAD) as well as negotiating conditions and terms with a commercial distributor (MGM) for the product. The project also saw him acting as the producer of a promotional video clip using an eight person crew. The administration of this entire project by Phillip McIntyre eventually involved the organization of the work and transportation of five personnel touring across the east coast of Australia. Dr Phillip McIntyre's professional management, creative capability and administrative expertise was instrumental in the success of this project.

Collaborations
Dr McIntyre collaborates with industry partners TechnicaCPT and Newcastle Now on an ARC Linkage Project entitled 'Creativity and Cultural Production in the Hunter'. This project undertakes an applied ethnographic study of key collaborative groups across all the major creative industries in the Hunter region in NSW. Mapping these industries’ approach to cultural production in the digital realm provides detailed insights into the dynamic entrepreneurial systems at the heart of creative industries. The project presents findings to policy makers, industry and academia to increase their understanding of factors affecting creative output in an increasingly technological world. The mapping of conditions favorable to creativity and innovation in the creative industries in the Hunter will be reported in trade magazines, scholarly publications and conference presentations.

This paper proposes that applying models from within creativity research to the discipline of communication will provide innovative ways of examining communication that pushes current knowledge of cultural production beyond established research programmes. At the University of Newcastle in Australia, researchers have been applying the systems model of creativity developed by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi to different forms of media practice in an attempt to provide a more comprehensive view of communication.Rather than focusing on either the producer or the receiver as the principal source of creativity, as other communication theories such as the transmission model and the cultural context model have done, this paper will demonstrate that the systems model of creativity allows both the producer and receiver to be examined as equal components within a creative system while also providing the contexts for creative production.Csikszentmihalyi argued that creativity is the product of a system that includes three necessary, but not individually sufficient, elements: a domain of knowledge (the cultural context), an individual who understands and uses that knowledge to produce a novel change, and a field (the social context) that understands the domain and uses that knowledge to judge that the individual's contribution is novel and appropriate. All three elements, domain, individual and field, are equally important in producing a creative outcome.The authors contend that the future of theorising about communication may lie in this confluence-based approach and demonstrate this contention by summarising the findings of creativity research in the communication studies discipline at the University of Newcastle. © 2014 National Communication Association.
