ENGL 5006 Studies in Research‑Creation

This course aims to familiarize students with the recent debates and developments in and around the concept of Research-Creation by turning to theoretical articulations as well as the products of Research-Creation in literary (and adjacent) contexts. More specifically, we will turn to the work of Natalie Loveless, Lynette Hunter, and Owen Chapman and Kim Sawchuk (among others) for theoretical grounding in the large and varied debates around Research-Creation. We will then turn to examples that disrupt established categories of dissemination of academic of research (e.g., academic podcasting, auto-theory, collaborative writing, documentary, etc.) as well as poetry, fiction, collage, theatre, and film that rely various methodologies of research (and representations of research) for their production of meaning.
