Arts and (Sciences) Creativities Research Group Monthly Series ‘Performing Research’ 2020/21

Given the tremendous success of the unique performative ‘Welcome Event’, where we hosted 60+ current and new members and where doctoral students and faculty members 'performed' their specialist research fields of poetry, magic, circus arts, sciences and writing, and rather than repeat our old model of seminars, we would like, with your help, to co-create a new vital model of online research sharings. The aims are:

  1. To bring together a transdisciplinary, international, inter-professional learning community
  2. To co-create a dialogic interactive space where an assemblage of diverse (yet connected) projects intersect and inspire discussion about performative research/methodology/ theory/ practice
  3. To critique the meeting of arts and sciences and share the unique welding and co-occurring of human (and other-than-human) creativities along with stimulation of scholarship and affect (and wellbeing enhancement) as a community
  4. To engage with me/we/re-search differently
  5. To capture the zeitgeist of each session, we will publish a rhizome or thematic summary with links to presenters research following each session
