This event took place last May, but there is a podcast which might be of interest to some of you researchers interested in thinking of alternative ways to present your work, and to think through the research process itself.
There seems to be funding in Britain available from AHRC and the ESRC for research that takes creative forms, and that overlaps with curatorial and artistic practice. Some of the speakers on the panels have quite practical advice about how to go about getting such funding, and thinking through creative research practice.
Beyond the Academy
Research as Exhibition
The exhibition is increasingly being reframed as a ‘research output’, but what can new forms of research and collaboration bring to the concept and curatorship of the exhibition? Is the idea of the exhibition being distorted or creatively extended by new disciplinary practices and knowledge? In what ways do new forms of research exhibitions create new types of knowledge and experience for the audience?
