  • THE BODY AND THE BOOK: ARTISTIC RESEARCH IN TODAY'S ACADEMY

    Artistic research — the idea that artistic and embodied practices not only draw upon but also generate knowledge — is increasingly common globally, but remains marginal in the United States. What is at stake in the claim that artistic and embodied practice can be research? What possibilities might be opened by such a claim and what legitimate resistances exist? This panel of scholar-practitioners and artist-researchers will discuss the relationships between practice and research in their own work, how they navigate diverse epistemologies across academic and artistic institutions, and what possible futures they envision.
