Arts-informed approaches to HDR supervision

9 March 2016

An Arts and Creative Education Research Network event with Professor Peter O'Connor

This workshop explores the collaborative experience using ‘performance in research’ as a method to grow doctoral student research knowledge in an education faculty. The workshop examines the development of conditions for collaboration between researchers through arts-based exploration that sustains and extends the work of the research community through disrupting traditional supervisor–student relationships.

  • Speaker: Professor Peter O’Connor is Professor of Critical Studies in Education at the University of Auckland, NZ. He is also an internationally recognised expert in applied theatre. His research focuses on applied theatre in marginalised and vulnerable communities. It has led to developing cutting-edge models of interdisciplinary praxis that explore the nexus of critical pedagogies, aesthetics and social justice. Recent applied-theatre research includes national programs aimed at preventing family violence and child abuse and parenting programs in youth-justice facilities. His work in Christchurch following the series of earthquakes has led to UNESCO-funded research and program development. In 2012, Professor O'Connor was named the Griffith University School of Education and Professional Studies Alumnus of the Year. He is currently engaged in the ongoing debates about charter schools and the nature of quality public education. Professor O'Connor was previously the National Education Manager for the Race Relations Office and the National Project manager for the "Like Minds" campaign with the Mental Health Foundation. His 2003 PhD on his work in forensic psychiatric units won the 2006 AATE Distinguished Dissertation Award in Washington DC.
