Practice-led research is a burgeoning area across the creative arts, with studio-based doctorates frequently favoured over traditional research. Yet until now there has been little published guidance for students embarking on such research. Designed specifically as a research training tool, the book is structured on the model used by most research programmes. A comprehensive introduction lays out the book’s framework and individual chapters provide concrete examples of studio-based research in art, film and video, creative writing and dance, each contextualised by a theoretical essay and complete with references.

The measurement of the significance and ‘impact’ of research is absolutely paramount in today’s academic world - as evidenced by the recent introductions of research assessment exercises in the UK, Australia, Hong Kong and New Zealand. Material Inventions: Applying Creative Arts Research offers new and original ways of conceptualizing impact and innovation in creative arts research. This important book demonstrates how artistic research is capable of solving real-life problems and presenting transforming accounts of the world. By articulating the inventions, innovations, application and broader uptake of artistic research in and beyond the field of art, expert contributors advance the claim that artistic research constitutes a new paradigm or ‘successor science’ that impacts on interdisciplinary research and in diverse community and industry settings. This is a timely follow-up to Practice as Research: Approaches to Creative Arts Enquiry and will be indispensable to researchers, institutions and research assessment bodies.

Carnal Knowledge

Towards a 'New Materialism' Through the Arts

Carnal Knowledge is an outcome of the renewed energy and interest in moving beyond the discursive construction of reality to understand the relationship between what is conceived of as reality and materiality, described as the "material turn." It draws together established and emerging writers, whose research spans dance, music, film, fashion, design, photography, literature, painting and stereo-immersive VR, to demonstrate how art allows us to map the complex relations between nature and culture, between the body, language and knowledge. These writings are unique in the field because they represent the authors' commitment to a new materialism through the creative arts. The questions they address include: Does the material turn in the creative arts take a different turn from continental epistemology, philosophy and the humanities? How does the agency of matter, the material nature of artistic practice and the notion of "truth to materials" affect what we understand as the "new materialism?" In engaging with these questions the book offers perspectives on the emergence of this exciting fresh field of new materialism.

Seit Jims ungeklärtem Tod hat Bee keinen ihrer Freunde mehr gesprochen. Als sich die fünf ein Jahr später in einem noblen Wochenendhaus an der Küste wiedertreffen, entgehen sie nachts nur knapp einem Autounfall. Unter Schock und vom Regen durchnässt kehren sie ins Haus zurück. Doch dann klopft ein geheimnisvoller Unbekannter an die Tür und eröffnet ihnen das Unfassbare: Der Unfall ist wirklich passiert und es gibt nur einen Überlebenden. Die Freunde sind in einer Zeitschleife zwischen Tod und Leben gefangen, in der sie dieselben elf Stunden immer wieder durchlaufen – bis sie sich geeinigt haben, wer von ihnen überlebt. Der Schlüssel zur Entscheidung scheint Jims Tod zu sein – in ihrer Verzweiflung beginnen die Freunde nachzuforschen, was wirklich mit ihm passiert ist, in jener Nacht, in der er in den Steinbruch stürzte. Und langsam wird klar, dass sie alle etwas zu verbergen haben … Ein echter Page-Turner, der einen nicht mehr loslässt!

Art Practice as Research

Inquiry in Visual Arts

Art Practice as Research, Second Edition continues to present a compelling argument that the creative and cultural inquiry undertaken by artists is a form of research. The text explores themes, practices, and contexts of artistic inquiry and positions them within the discourse of research. Sullivan argues that legitimate research goals can be achieved by choosing different methods than those offered by the social sciences. The common denominator in both approaches is the attention given to rigor and systematic inquiry. Artists emphasize the role of the imaginative intellect in creating, criticizing, and constructing knowledge that is not only new but also has the capacity to transform human understanding.

In einer globalisierten Gesellschaft kommt dem Tanz als Medium eines an den Körper gebundenen Wissens wachsende Aufmerksamkeit zu: Er wird als eigenständige Kunstform wahrgenommen, kultur- und bildungspolitisch gefördert und zunehmend als Forschungsobjekt entdeckt. Tanz ist weltweit in Bewegung - und mit ihm das Wissen, das in ihm steckt. Aber was macht Körperwissen in Bewegung aus, wie wird es produziert, wie lässt es sich erforschen und vermitteln? Namhafte Choreographen, Tänzer, Wissenschaftler und Pädagogen beschreiben in diesem Band das einzigartige Potenzial des Tanzes als Archiv und Medium sowie seine Bedeutung an der Schnittstelle von Kunst und Wissenschaft.

It is frequently commented that Heidegger writes impenetrable texts that are difficult to read and comprehend, but he also, as Barbara Bolt demonstrates in this clear, original guide to his oeuvre, provides an "artists' guide to the world." Heidegger Reframed grounds Heidegger's writings in the critical questions confronting contemporary visual artists and students of art. Barbara Bolt takes the most relevant of his texts, including his most famous work, Being and Time, and sets out ways of thinking about art in a post-medium, digital, technocratic, and post-human age. She does so through the frame of works by international artists, including Sophie Calle, Anish Kapoor, and Anselm Keifer. A glossary of terms completes this full and clear companion to Heidegger.

Entwerfen - Wissen - Produzieren

Designforschung im Anwendungskontext

»Wissen« und »Forschung« sind zu Schlüsselbegriffen für das Design avanciert. In der Designforschung wird derzeit die wechselwirksame Beziehung zwischen Praktiken des Entwerfens, Wissens und Produzierens eingehend befragt. Von zentraler Bedeutung ist dabei der Aspekt des Anwendungskontextes, der das Paradox beschreibt, dass die gegenwärtige Produktion von Wissen sich zwar gesellschaftlichen Fragestellungen annähert, zugleich aber eine Kommerzialisierung dieses Wissens befördert. Die interdisziplinären Beiträge des Bandes zeigen, wie das praktische und theoretische Designwissen innerhalb dieses Spannungsfeldes verhandelt wird.

This book addresses one of the most exciting and innovative developments within higher education: the rise in prominence of the creative arts and the accelerating recognition that creative practice is a form of research. The book considers how creative practice can lead to research insights through what is often known as practice-led research. But unlike other books on practice-led research, it balances this with discussion of how research can impact positively on creative practice through research-led practice. The editors posit an iterative and web-like relationship between practice and research. Essays within the book cover a wide range of disciplines including creative writing, dance, music, theatre, film and new media, and the contributors are from the UK, US, Canada and Australia. The subject is approached from numerous angles: the authors discuss methodologies of practice-led research and research-led practice, their own creative work as a form of research, research training for creative practitioners, and the politics and histories of practice-led research and research-led practice within the university. The book will be invaluable for creative practitioners, researchers, students in the creative arts and university leaders. Key Features*The first book to document, conceptualise and analyse practice-led research in the creative arts and to balance it with research-led practice*Written by highly qualified academics and practitioners across the creative arts and sciences *Brings together empirical, cultural and creative approaches*Presents illuminating case histories of creative work and practice-led research

Die 'Teacher Education and Development Study: Learning to Teach Mathematics (TEDS-M)' der International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) war die erste international-vergleichende Studie, die den tertiären Bildungssektor mit standardisierten Testungen in den Blick nahm. Die Studie verglich die am Ende der Mathematiklehrerausbildung erreichten Kompetenzen von Lehrkräften für die Primarstufe und die Sekundarstufe I in 16 Staaten. Deutschland beteiligte sich mit repräsentativen Stichproben von Mathematiklehrkräften für die Primarstufe bzw. die Sekundarstufe I im letzten Jahr ihrer Ausbildung aus allen Bundesländern sowie einer repräsentativen Stichprobe von Lehrerausbildenden in entsprechenden Ausbildungsgängen. Diese Skalendokumentation enthält - soweit freigegeben - die Instrumente aller TEDS-M-Befragungen und -Testungen in deutscher und englischer Sprache (einschl. Kodierleitfäden). Für die Verwendung in weiteren Studien werden die Fragen zur Person ebenso dokumentiert wie die Fragen zu den Überzeugungen und Lerngelegenheiten der angehenden Lehrkräfte sowie der Lehrerausbildenden. Die Skalendokumentation stellt so auch ein unverzichtbares Hilfsmittel dar, um mit den kürzlich freigegebenen TEDS-M-Datensätzen Sekundäranalysen durchführen zu können. Darüber hinaus können der Skalendokumentation die wichtigsten Kennwerte zu den TEDS-M-Ergebnissen entnommen werden: Häufigkeiten, Mittelwerte, Standardfehler, verschiedene Verteilungsmaße und die Anteile fehlender Werte.

Das zornige Meer, die rote Wüste, die unbarmherzige Natur – dafür ist der australische Schriftsteller Tim Winton berühmt, in seinen Geschichten ist der Mensch immer auch ein Ausgesetzter. In seinem neuen Roman erzählt er die Geschichte eines ehemaligen Umweltaktivisten, dessen Dasein gescheitert ist und der, gerade als er zu verzweifeln droht, eine neue Aufgabe für sich und vielleicht auch wieder Sinn und Hoffnung für sein Leben findet. Tom Keely hat mehr als nur eine Midlife-Crisis: Einst bekannter und überzeugter Umweltaktivist, hat er nun, mit Mitte vierzig, durch einen Skandal seinen Job verloren, nebenbei seine Ehe zerstört und will mit der Welt nichts mehr zu tun haben. Alkohol und Tabletten helfen ihm zu vergessen, was schiefgelaufen ist. Er lebt in einem Apartmenthochhaus in Fremantle, einer schäbigen Hafenstadt in der Nähe von Perth, Westaustralien, und dort sieht er täglich vor seiner Haustür, was Gier und Korruption im großen und Gewaltverbrechen und Drogenhandel im kleinen Maßstab aus der Stadt und seinem Land gemacht haben. Als plötzlich Gemma Buck, eine alte Bekannte aus seiner Kindheit, in das Hochhaus einzieht, wird Tom aus seiner Abwärtsspirale gerissen; vor allem Gemmas sechsjähriger Enkel Kai, ein hochsensibler, verstörter Junge, den Gemma aufzieht, weil seine Mutter im Gefängnis sitzt, weckt Gefühle und Kräfte in Tom, die er längst verloren glaubte. Um jeden Preis versucht er, Gemma und Kai vor weiteren Katastrophen in ihrem prekären Leben zu beschützen. Und es scheint, als könnte diese merkwürdige kleine Familie entgegen aller Erwartung alte Wunden heilen und das Leben wieder lebenswert machen ...

Art therapy and all of the other creative arts therapies have promoted themselves as ways of expressing what cannot be conveyed in conventional language. Why is it that creative arts therapists fail to apply this line of thinking to research? In this exciting and innovative book, Shaun McNiff, one of the field's pioneering educators and authors, breaks new ground in defining and inspiring art-based research. He illustrates how practitioner-researchers can become involved in art-based inquiries during their educational studies and throughout their careers, and shows how new types of research can be created that resonate with the artistic process. Clearly and cogently expressed, the theoretical arguments are illustrated by numerous case examples, and the final part of the book provides a wealth of ideas and thought provoking questions for research. This challenging book will prove invaluable to creative art therapy educators, students, and clinicians who wish to approach artistic inquiry as a way of conducting research. It will also find a receptive audience within the larger research community where there is a rising commitment to expanding the theory and practice of research. Integrating artistic and scientific procedures in many novel ways, this book offers fresh and productive visions of what research can be.
