Staffordshire University (UK) Rebellious Research: The best questions are often the last questions: making sense of experimental creative practice as research
By Roy Hanney (Associate Professor of Media Production, Southampton Solent University) & Ben Harbisher (Head of MeCCSA Practice Network and Associate Professor at Coventry University).
Part 1: Roy Hanney: The best questions are often the last questions: making sense of experimental creative practice as research
Dr. Hanney will explore some of the issues that emerged from a recent paper that reflected on a creative practice project he ran in 2019. In particular, he will reflect on how the research question emerged after the practice and ask what this means for practice-based researchers engaged in experimental and sandbox projects.
Part 2: Ben Harbisher: Behavioural science, normative discourse, and the art of consent
The session will largely examine visual examples and advertising practices that emerged during the pandemic. In part this will also provide a critique of Thaler and Sunstein’s “Nudge” theory and its deployment during the crisis as a means to sway public opinion and shape conduct during the new normal.
