Arts Based Research

  1. 1. Arts-Based Research (ABR) is an umbrella term for many different approaches that combine scholarly inquiry and the arts. These methods tap into artistic process as a primary mode of inquiry creating various forms of art as a way to collect data, conduct analysis, and/or represent social science research.
  2. 2. Knowledge can be generated by artistic knowing and creative inquiry.

  12. 12. What is the purpose of the study, and what role(s) will art play in accomplishing this purpose? Is the ultimate aim to generate good/great art or to provide insight into significant educational phenomenon? Should research be judged as much on its aesthetic as its scholarly merit?
  13. 13. My experience throughout my journey in the doctoral pro- gram has mostly been about finding a balance between all things in my life that are competing for my time and energy. The pieces don’t necessarily fit, but that doesn’t mean that a balance cannot be found. The continuous raging blizzards of this winter are indeed an apt metaphor for my journey. The experiences that have shaped me in profound ways this year as so beau- tiful to look at from afar and I am so glad they happened, yet in the midst of them.. totally disorienting. This is my cello. Being a doctoral student and learning to play the cello have both been dreams of mine. Both goals require patience, dis- cipline, and a willingness to make mistakes. Both require financial investment. I believe they will both pay off (but not necessarily financially). Neither would happen without mentoring from competent and patient teachers. Both are often fun, but some- times both feel like a lot of work. Both have led me to communities of remarkable people. Unlike my studies, my cello is currently neglected. This journey is a million adjectives at once, in batches and singularly. This image represents all those for me. It has beauty, character, uncertainty, hope and adventure. Where will lead? Do I follow the woman in the picture? Do I go through the hall? What will my vulnerability net me….what is the risk? This is a picture taken in old town Lublin, Poland. It leads to what is now a vibrant and colourful old town filled with tourists. In the 1940’s it led to a Nazi prison and ultimately train to a death camp nearby. As early as the 1500’s it was a path to the some of the most learned men living in the era. Change…..the only true constant.
