Practice Research Unit
The founding aim of Kingston University's practice research unit is to look at contemporary aspects of practice as research (practice led and practice based) within drama and performance, film, music, fine art, dance, and creative writing, with a view to sharing the latest and best ideas in terms of standalone research and research-led pedagogy.
Its methodology is, firstly, to assay the current state of practice as research across all disciplines, and then to take the agenda forward through a number of major events each year, as well as through smaller local workshops occurring more frequently. A pluralism of approach will be a defining trait, and its events will be oriented towards both faculty and graduate students working in practice as research, be they Kingston-based, UK-based, or international.
Generative Constraints is an interdisciplinary Royal Holloway practice-based PhD conference that intends to interrogate the politics, poetics and performativity of limitation and production.
Organised by postgraduate researchers across departments of English, Music, New Media and Theatre, the aim of this conference is to foreground practice as a means of exploration and creative criticality.
The project is funded by the Faculty Initiative Fund and the Departments of English, Drama & Theatre, Media Arts, and Music at Royal Holloway University of London. The conference is being organised with generous help and sponsorship from practice research unit at Kingston University.
