Scholartistry

Incorporating Scholarship and Art

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The article focuses upon arts-based research in a dialogical unfolding of why art should be and can be integrated in academic work at present, and furthermore situates this development in broad context. The notion of scholartistry, hydrid scholarship-arts practice, is introduced by situating it in the academic literature on research methodology and through exemplification/demonstration - an imaginary exhibition of scholartistic artefacts. Several samples of arts-based research methods are discussed in terms of knowledge production and creative competencies. Connections are drawn with post-disciplinary agendas in the academy and beyond. The argument is made that a distinctive field of scholartistry offers an expansion of project and problem based learning in manifold cultural and organizational fields that are looking for open-ended creative modes of design and production.
