The Arts, Pedagogy & Becoming - The Materiality of Arts-Based Research

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


This presentation maps an affirmative approach to critical theory through the process of crafting 'identity boxes' with ESOL students from refugee and asylum backgrounds in a college in Glasgow, Scotland (UK). The presentation takes as its starting point the work of feminist and neomaterialist thinkers who argue for an ontological re-orientation of our practices of inquiry. I argue that students artworks
assert an alternative, ontological research aesthetic that works from an aesthetic-ethics-epistemology nexus.
