This conference will explore the ongoing ‘accelerating influence’ of practice-based research, as it continues to shape new ways of thinking about research and creative methodologies. Focusing on the evolution and increasing importance of creative practice within academic contexts across the arts and humanities, Cracking the Established Order (CtEO) returns to the key question of ‘Can practice allow us to re-envision the role of a traditional researcher?’. We are looking for ways that practice-based research provides a possibility for the formation of new knowledge – both critical and embodied - created and articulated through unique forms and formats. CtEO provides a new platform to reconsider the provocative potential of practice-based research.
