Arts-Based Education Conference at QueenOs


ART is the force at the first major international conference in the United Kingdom exploring arts-based educational research. It is taking place at QueenOs University Belfast from today, hosted by the Graduate School of Education. Arts-based methods are used by educational researchers and other social scientists. They show how various visual, dramatic and textual practices can be employed to explore other issues. At the conference, local and international researchers will outline how they use a range of methods such as visual sociology, narrative inquiry, drama, music and visual arts, autobiography and ethnographic studies in their work. Presentations will show how arts-based research methodologies are used to illuminate experiences of lives made difficult by aspects of social and psychological difference: for example, by gender, sexuality, ethnicity, illness, disability and sectarian division, among other issues. OWe are very excited by the conference, and believe it will be an event with a difference, given the range of presentations, the variety of participants and the rich supporting entertainment programme,O said Dr Ruth Leitch, Head of the Graduate School of Education, and a member of the conference organising committee.
