Knowings and Knots

Methodologies and Ecologies in Research-Creation

Knowings and Knots presents a range of interdisciplinary perspectives on the methodology of research-creation and asks how those who make knowledge think about and value it. Not just a method but a site of ongoing experimentation around what counts as knowledge, research-creation is a meeting place of academia, artistic creation, and the wider public. The contributors argue that academic institutions and funders must recognize research-creation as innovative knowledge-making that leaps over the traditional splitting of theory from practice while considering how gender/feminist studies, Indigenous practices, and new materialism might inform and develop the conversation. Through this book, readers can transform the way they experience both art and education. Contributors: Carolina Cambre, Owen Chapman, Paul Couillard, T.L. Cowan, John Cussans, Randy Lee Cutler, Petra Hroch, Rachelle Viader Knowles, Natalie Loveless, Glen Lowry, Erin Manning, Sourayan Mookerjea, Natasha Myers, Simon Pope, Stephanie Springgay, Sarah E. Truman

Natalie Loveless is Associate Professor in History of Art, Design, and Visual Culture at the University of Alberta, where she also directs the Research-Creation and Social Justice CoLABoratory.


"Research-creation transcends conventional research methods, being an integrated praxis that is devised and tailored for each project. This collection explores some of the charged, contradictory, and productive spaces in which research-creation practitioners and educators find themselves within academia."

"Knowings and Knots speaks to a particularly prevalent question in the field, that is, how the results of research-creation can be presented within the frameworks of academic writing and publication. The solutions presented here are elegant, creative, rigorous, and thought-provoking."
