Description This unit investigates conceptual and theoretical models used in Creative Arts Research. It introduces students to a variety of important methodologies, including empiricism, experimentation, practice-based research, performativity-as-method, and narrative inquiry. It will also focus on writing as a creative praxis that has an important relationship to all the creative arts. Methodologies will be explored through the analysis of various theoretical and conceptual models that are applied in and produced through creative work. The unit will include a variety of strategies for analysing and documenting creative work, including observation, participation, reflection and representation. It will also examine the divisions between theory and practice, asking whether theory is in itself a practice that empiricism describes. It will look at the conditions under which creative arts research is produced, exploring its meanings, effects and affects.
