Handbook of Arts-Based Research (Hardback)Patricia Leavy (editor)
- We can order this
Bringing together interdisciplinary leaders in methodology and arts-based research (ABR), this comprehensive handbook explores the synergies between artistic and research practices and addresses issues in designing, implementing, evaluating, and publishing ABR studies. Coverage includes the full range of ABR genres, including those based in literature (such as narrative and poetic inquiry); performance (music, dance, playbuilding); visual arts (drawing and painting, collage, installation art, comics); and audiovisual and multimethod approaches. Each genre is described in detail and brought to life with robust research examples. Team approaches, ethics, and public scholarship are discussed, as are innovative ways that ABR is used within creative arts therapies, psychology, education, sociology, health sciences, business, and other disciplines. The companion website includes selected figures from the book in full color, additional online-only figures, and links to online videos of performance pieces.

"Renowned author and editor Leavy has assembled prominent artist-researchers--from educators and therapists to beyond--for this outstanding, innovative handbook. The volume surveys the philosophy and practice of progressive inquiry using literary, performative, and exhibited modalities. Contributors present rich guidance and compelling arguments for the role of ABR alongside more traditional research methods in the exploration of complex social worlds. Like exceptional art, this handbook has magnitude, quality, and significance for researchers and students across multiple disciplines, including the social sciences, education, health care, business, humanities, media, and fine arts."--Johnny Saldana, MFA, School of Film, Dance, and Theatre (Emeritus), Arizona State University
"With this handbook, Leavy not only helps to define the field of ABR, but also encourages readers to imagine new ways of conducting and appreciating research. Beautifully rendered chapters describe the emergent, diverse world of artistic inquiry. Leavy and her contributors balance the conceptual with the practical. The volume guides researchers and students to bring both creativity and vigor to producing works of scholarly art."--Ronald J. Chenail, PhD, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Nova Southeastern University
"Leavy, a champion of ABR, has gathered leading scholars from around the world in this welcome contribution to our rapidly growing field. She uses ABR as an inclusive term that encompasses the myriad current approaches to creative scholarship. The Handbook offers chapters on various methods and genres, as well as chapters on practical issues that will help both emergent and established researchers explore and expand their craft. Traversing scholarly disciplines and art forms, this volume ushers ABR into its own as a new paradigm for research. It is a gift for anyone with a passion for bringing artistry to research."--Diane Conrad, PhD, Department of Secondary Education (Drama/Theatre Education), University of Alberta, Canada
"Famed educator Albert Cullum once said of those who saw the arts as a waste of time that they were 'all formula and no soul.' If only Cullum had had at his disposal this superb, reader-friendly handbook for researchers, students, and others interested in how art in its various forms intersects with knowledge in disciplines such as education, psychology, and neuroscience. This is a work that will be read, reread, and referenced often, and that will help academics of all types understand and explain clearly to others how art can work to combine both 'formula' (that is, research analysis) and 'soul.'"--David A. Almeida, EdD, Department of Special Education, Bridgewater State University, Massachusetts
