Practice-as-research Group launch

An inter-disciplinary reading/practice group supported by artsmethods@manchester and the Institute for Cultural Practices. 

1.30pm, Wednesday 5th December (introductory meeting)

Room 2.04, Mansfield Cooper

- is practice an integral part of your research method and/or outcome? 

- are you interested in engaging with practice-as-research in the future?

We are two PhD candidates using practice-as-research within History and Museum Studies and are looking to start a dialogue about practice-as-research in the humanities and beyond. 

We would like to invite postgraduates and early year researchers interested or involved in practice-as-research to the first of an informal reading/ practice group that will meet monthly to share methods, ideas, problems and practicalities.

We are also interested in sharing ideas with researchers from other disciplines that have an established relationship with practice-as-research, such as Visual Anthropology, Screen Studies, Drama, Creative Writing, Music, Architecture and beyond the university to the visual and experimental arts - so please come along if you would like to join the conversation.

Suggested agenda for the first meeting:

- What is practice-as-research in the humanities? 

- What can we learn from disciplines with an established relationship with practice-as-research?

- Is there a difference between practice-based research and practice-as-research?
