Goal: creating a shared visionWe want to improve the quality of research in the arts. In doing so, it is important to approach the design of research in a way that benefits researchers and facilitates their process, as well as lending transparency to this process of designing and conducting research. The goal of the project is therefore explicitly not to combine different approaches into a single research methodology, but rather to create a shared vision of the design of research methodologies. In doing so, we are striving for high quality in research processes, results and impact.
The research project Common Ground consists of four overlapping phases:
- Creating a conceptual, ethical and philosophical framework
- Developing the methodological model
- Sharing and disseminating knowledge
- Embedding in HKU research
Approach to the researchThe research is conducted in various ways, including:
- Discussions and interviews
- Theoretical reflection
- Input from the education and supervision practice of postdoc Falk Hübner
- Input from the artistic research practice of the postdoc in the projects In Touch by HKU researcher Marloeke van der Vlugt in collaboration with sociologist Carey Hewitt, and In Search of Stories by the Performative Creative Processes professorship.
- Input from the Musal Professionalisation Workshop by the Art and Professionalisation professorship.
Although the postdoc is leading the process, he never works alone. Many people from HKU are involved in the project:
- Lecturers and research supervisors from various studies
- The HKU Expertise Centre for Research, Innovation and Internationalisation
- HKU research unit (including Arja Veerman, the other postdoc researcher in the field of Creative Research Methodology).
