when 6 July 2024 - 20 July 2024

duration 2 weeks

fee EUR 1310

Research-creation is an approach to research that engages artistic expression, scholarly investigation, curiosity, and experimentation. In practice, this means that research topics are selected and explored through a creation process, such as photography, the production of a film or video, performance or installation, sound-work, zine, recipe, or multimedia arts/texts.

Research-creation is important in a variety of fields, cultural institutions, and disciplines. In recent years, universities have used it to boost their public profiles and promote community-engaged collaborations. That being said, the increasing institutionalization of research-creation must be approached critically and situated within a broader context of power relations within academia, education, and research. In this course, research-creation will be framed as an intervention and invitation for scholars to push disciplinary boundaries, challenge taken-for-granted assumptions about what academic work entails, and consider ways to make their work more sustainable, accessible, and responsive to issues concerning social justice.
