My research explores research-creation (RC), an approach that brings together creative and academic research practices, to conduct and share research. This Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) funded project looks through the analytical lens of information practice, with specific focus on information sharing. I seek to understand how research constituents perceive and engage with RC modes and methods to generate new knowledge, negotiate academia, and conceptualize expertise.
As a Public Scholars awardee I hope to contribute to the ongoing exploration of re-imagining entrenched understandings of academic institutions and their relationships with communities, as well as exploring the processes of knowledge creation.
