Log-in for full text

This chapter discusses art-based research practice as it critiques and challenges the myth of the researcher as a distant outsider, debunking the researcher's privilege of rationality and positivism. It argues the potential of using alternative creative processes for conducting research in the academy, focusing in particular on the crucial role of the research adviser. Randee Lipson Lawrence and Patricia Cranton worked in adult education where they have mentored doctoral students in writing dissertations. The chapter describes how research can incorporate music, fiction, poetry, painting, photography, theatre and more and provide specific examples from the practice and experience with arts-based research. It reviews some of the challenges and obstacles encountered in promoting creative research in the universities. The researcher may create art such as writing poems based on interview transcripts or performing participants' stories.
