“Researching Creative Practice: Terminology, Policy, Models”Alphaville: Journal of Film and Screen Media Issue 17, Summer 2019

Research has been published on creative practice encompassing a broad range of arts (Barrett and Bolt), in some cases focussing on the visual arts (Sullivan), the performing arts (Nelson) and, more recently, the impact of technology on practice (Baker and Sicchio).  While some of the debates raised in these volumes may also be relevant to film and audiovisual media, relatively few books concern themselves exclusively with the burgeoning area of creative screen practice. This issue of Alphaville will focus on film and screen media, raising strategic questions and addressing some of the gaps in the current discourse pertinent to creative screen practice. In particular, there will be a focus on how outputs “produced by researchers who use artistic practice as the engine of their investigations” (Gibson vi) are currently evaluated and valued within and outside the academy. The issue will include both scholarly articles and a dossier of case studies. The deadline for abstracts is June 15 — please find the full CFP and the submission details here: http://www.alphavillejournal.com/Issue14/CFPAlphavilleIssue17.pdf
