Research into Practice has a core interest in the fundamental principles, philosophies, and problems that underpin research in the creative and performing arts. Its objectives include understanding how research contributes to the development of the discipline; and the problem of the relationship of the image, the object, the presentation and the word. It seeks to facilitate the highest level of debate amongst professional researchers, academics, practitioners and postgraduate students; to respond to the national and international context; and to contribute to the development of research policy.
As part of its commitment to disseminate the outcomes of its research activity as widely as possible, the University continues to publish selected papers from this conference in the open-access peer-reviewed electronic journal Working Papers in Art and Design, that can be accessed from this page. This is the leading international resource for scholarship on issues concerning the development and theorization of practice-led research in the creative and performing arts.
