Drawing on the arts, transforming research: Possibilities of arts-informed perspectives, by Ardra Cole & Gary Knowles

An exploration of the possibilities for and challenges of arts-informed research is the focus of the presentation. We begin by recounting the beginnings and foundational elements of arts-informed research and illustrate the various ways in which it is embraced by a variety of qualitative researchers (as a stand-alone approach or in combination with other per-spectives). We emphasize the transformational possibilities that come with presenting scholarship in alternatives ways to traditional academic discourse. The barriers and challenges to researching through the arts are also addressed. We illus-trate and provide examples within our presentation from the work of graduate researchers and others and, in doing so, we address the utility and constraints of arts-informed research.

Action Research

Presenters: Susan Groundwater-Smith and Jude Irwin

Time: 4:30-6:30pm, 26 March 2009 (refreshments at 4:30pm for 5:00pm start)

Venue: 351, Education Building (A35), The University of Sydney

Abstract

This presentation will be a conversation about action research in education (Susan) and social work (Jude). It will commence with an assertion that action research is not, in fact, a methodology but an orientation to inquiry with an obligation to action. As such it admits a number of methodological approaches but resists quasi-experimental ones of the grounds of the particularity of the context and the specificity of the purposes.
