The Researching Research-Creation symposium investigates various configurations of research-creation, practice-led research, practice-based research, and/or artistic research in the context of the development of doctoral programs for artist-scholars.
The Researching Research-Creation Symposium brings together four scholars who have been active in shaping the ways we understand research-creation, practice-led methodologies, and the alternative epistemologies and ontologies championed by such practices.
