PACE Building, De Montfort University, Leicester

27 – 28th June 2019

The turn to creative practice is one of the most exciting and revolutionary developments to occur in the university within the last two decades and is currently accelerating in influence. It is bringing with it dynamic new ways of thinking about research and new methodologies for conducting it, a raised awareness of the different kinds of knowledge that creative practice can convey and an illuminating body of information about the creative process(Smith and Dean, 2009:1)

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?’

Cracking the Established Order (CtEO) is a two day interdisciplinary conference that invites researchers and artists to continue to 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 artsand humanities, CtEO returns to the key question of ‘Can practice allow us to re-envision the role of a traditional researcher?’. Through this conference, we will explore together how 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.
