Power and Doctoral Supervision Teams engages with the interplay of power generated through the way doctoral supervision teams are structured and how they operate in reality. The stories of experienced academic supervisors and late-stage doctoral students from a cross section of Education, Humanities and Social Sciences teach us what theory and how-to guide books cannot.

By using the narrative of stories to explain the models, the lived experience of interpersonal power dynamics shows the promises, pitfalls, joys and frustrations of the various team forms. The book alerts the reader to the great variety of practices and the potential and hazards within.

This book is an essential resource for doctoral research students to understand what works in team supervision; for academic supervisors who want to look at options outside of supervision or readjust their current strategies; and for academic administrators as they revise policies that apply to doctoral supervision.
