Knowings and Knots presents a range of interdisciplinary perspectives on the methodology of research-creation and asks how those who make knowledge think about and value it. Not just a method, but a site of ongoing contestation and experimentation around what counts as knowledge, research-creation is a meeting place of academia, artistic creation, and the wider public. The contributors argue that academic institutions and funders must recognize research-creation as innovative knowledge-making that overleaps the traditional splitting of theory from practice. Here we can transform the way people experience both art and education. A provocative, necessary collection, Knowings and Knots is sure to become a standout text in this field. It is pivotal reading for artists and researchers working in research-creation, students and scholars in allied fields, and funders, policymakers, and senior postsecondary administrators.
