Description

Practice-led research is a burgeoning area across the creative arts, with studio-based doctorates now increasingly favored over traditional research. This new paperback edition of the first book to be designed specifically as a training tool to guide students embarking on such research will be welcomed by students and educators. The chapters provide concrete examples of studio-based research in art, film, video, creative writing and dance, each contextualized by a theoretical essay, complete with references. More than a handbook, the volume draws on such thinkers as Deleuze, Bourdieu and Heidegger in its examination of the relationship between practice and theory. It takes pains to elaborate methodologies, outcomes and contexts and is a valuable demonstration of how practice can operate as a valid alternative mode of inquiry to traditional scholarly research.
