Research in practice 2

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in conference


Contributions to knowledge in the various fields of creative research practice often emerge from the artful translation, representation and/ or relaying of existing cultural, social and aesthetic material. This forthcoming, free one-day event will create space for participants to explore the implications, pragmatics, constraints and potentialities of creative practice research that seeks to make meaning from the voices, actions, works and legacies of others. Our event will be opened by a keynote from Dr Jo Ronan of UWS, after which we will convene three panel sessions featuring shorter presentations and creative showcases from early-career/ doctoral researchers from across the UK. Fuller details are provided below: Keynote Dr Jo Ronan, University of the West of Scotland In conversation with Fatima Rateb: Does performance offer ways to reconfigure the competing claims of difference and equality?
