Method Meets Art: Arts-Based Research Practice

Method Meets Art: Arts-Based Research Practice Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book presents the first comprehensive introduction to arts-based research (ABR) practices, which scholars in multiple disciplines are fruitfully using to reveal information and represent experiences that traditional methods cannot capture. Each of the six major ABR genres - narrative inquiry, poetry, music, performance, dance, and visual art - is covered in chapters that introduce key concepts and tools and present an exemplary research article by a leading ABR practitioner. Patricia Leavy discusses the kinds of research questions these innovative approaches can address and offers practical guidance for applying them in all phases of a research project, from design and data collection to analysis, interpretation, representation, and evaluation. Chapters include checklists to guide methodological decision making, discussion questions, and recommended print and online resources.

This book is aimed at students and researchers in departments of education, sociology, psychology, communications, nursing, and fine arts. It can serve as a primary or supplemental text for advanced undergraduate and graduate level courses in interpretive inquiry, narrative inquiry, qualitative methods, and research methods.

Synopsis:

A comprehensive, highly accessible introduction to arts-based research (ABR), this widely used text provides a practical guide for researchers who want to uncover information that traditional methods cannot capture. Patricia Leavy addresses all eight major ABR genres--narrative inquiry, fiction-based research, poetry, music, dance, theatre, film, and visual art. Following a consistent format, chapters review how each genre developed, explore its methodological variations and the kind of research questions it can address, and describe sample studies. An exemplary research article or online video link demonstrates each set of techniques in practice.

New to This Edition:

*Covers two additional ABR genres: fiction-based research and film.

*Chapter on the criteria for evaluating ABR studies.

*Most end-of-chapter exemplars are new; plus links to online exemplars added for ABR performance studies.

*Chapters restructured to follow a consistent format.

*Implications for creative arts therapies are addressed throughout.

*Increased attention to public scholarship and audience issues.

*Expanded discussions of ABR as a paradigm, playbuilding, and technology.

Pedagogical Features:

*Checklists of issues to consider when deciding how to use a particular method.

*Discussion questions and activities that can be worked on in class or assigned.

*Annotated lists of suggested readings and websites, including links to online performance pieces.

*Instructive research examples from multiple disciplines.
