Abstract

Co-authored by Prof Vida Midgelow and Prof Jane Bacon, we focus on the undertaking and supervision of movement-based research to offer innovative approaches to doctoral processes, seeking to open up the potential for thinking and enquiry through practice across all aspects of the research journey.

It will be particularly relevant for candidates seeking different ways of working, academics seeking to improve their own supervisory practices informed by the experiences of colleagues in the same field and those in the cultural arts sector looking for insights and ways to better support and enable artists in the undertaking and making public of their research work.

We illuminate, and hopefully inspire, ways of going about and supporting research as a creative, co-relational, collective and networked process. Throughout you will find tasks, provocations, activities, scores and other actions to illuminate ways in which this model can be activated. In speaking to and across the needs of candidates, supervisors and the cultural sector, it reflects our commitment to the productive interface between sectors in the advancement of artistic research. This is in line with an understanding of, and emphasis toward, the value and impact of doctoral knowledge beyond the academy.

Contents include:
