Abstract or Description

Practices, teaching and art production practices are modes of thought already in the act. Contemporary arts practices call us to think anew, through remaking the world materially and relationally. Building on this ethos of practice as thought already in the act, this collection from practitioner arts educators and cultural theorists responds to increased attention being paid to matter and creativity in social sciences and humanities research, often referred to as new materialism. This collections calls for an embodied, affective, relational understanding of the research process where an intersection of making and thinking is important. In this collection, we show that the way making impacts on thinking is a material pedagogy.
