Methodology for arts–informed research

Towards an understanding of arts-based and arts-informed research

This series of six talks is designed for researchers interested in developing their understanding of arts-based and arts-informed research. A list of further reading is provided for each topic.

While the anchor is in research in education, the methodological issues discussed have wider currency, and the invitation to participate is extended to staff and research higher degree students in the faculties of Education and Social Work, Arts and Social Sciences, Law and beyond.

The "Methodology for arts-informed research" research training module is part of a broader aspiration of the Office of Doctoral Studies to promote a vibrant research culture in the faculty and the division by inviting established and emerging researchers to talk about how they go about their own work, focusing on how they conceptualise and enact the research process. The first lecture, by Professor Robyn Ewing, is also the inaugural presentation in a broader series of fortnightly lectures called Foundations of Social Research that the faculty has scheduled for Semester Two 2013.

Interested researchers are welcome and encouraged to attend any, or all, sessions.
