about this network
This network has the intention of making visible the specific research interest that some researchers within CfU share: arts-based research methods in teaching and educational research, and performativity as a theoretical perspective. Participants share a clear interest in different approaches to performativity theories and research methods that include the body, affects, creativity, artistic means and methodological diversity. AMPERE is conceived as a learning community and dialogical platform that connects the participants’ research interests. The purpose is:
- To build a concrete platform for ongoing in-depth conversations
- To make visible to external observers some themes CfU researchers work with
- To strengthen the area of arts-based methods and performativity in education research in order to eventually describe shared research projects and emerging fund raising strategies
- Activities must be emerging, meaningful and relevant for existing research projects/studies.
The network is anchored in existing teaching activities, such as KREA Master, Learning and Innovative Processes and techno antropology.
This network extends CfU’s focus on the aesthetic, creative, socially aware educational research and contributes to the research group’s mission to:
- Contribute to the knowledge of creation- and implementation processes within the field of teaching, education and evaluation (the programme will specifically contribute by looking at arts-based and performative practices and perspectives).
- Strengthen the foundation for teaching, education and evaluation through theoretically and empirically well-founded and critical research, as well as through practical carrying out of development and evaluation (the programme will specifically contribute by looking at arts-based interventions and performative social practices).
- Constructing and maintaining national and international contacts and networks (the programme will specifically contribute by strengthening networks based on arts-based and performativity themes).
