De-mystifying Practice as Research: a working model for the practitioner-researcher and PhD candidate/supervisor

University of Portsmouth, St George's Building, room 0.13
7 May 2008 15:00-17:00

Invited talk by Prof. Robin Nelson (Manchester Metropolitan University)

Recognizing creative practice as research has become an area of hot debate in the arts and humanities. The School of Creative Arts, Film and Media at the University of Porstmouth are very pleased to announce that Professor Robin Nelson will be giving an invited talk in which he will outline a model for practice as research. Prof. Nelson will draw upon his experience in supervising and examining PaR PhDs and his work with the Practice as Research in Performance (PARIP) and AVPhD initiatives to gain acceptance for 'practice as research' in the contemporary university context. He will share his model for constructing and conducting a 'practice as research' project and illustrate approaches to be avoided as well as those which should lead to successful outcomes.

Robin is Professor of Theatre and TV Drama at Manchester Metropolitan University and currently a member of the RAE Panel for UoA 65, Drama, Dance & Performing Arts. He is a member of the steering group of AVPhD and from 2001-2006 was an Advisory Board member of PARIP.
