Creating Knowledge: Reflections on Research Involving Creative Product and Exegesis
Weaven, Mary
English in Australia, v50 n3 p50-55 2015
Focusing on subject English, this article considers the role that "creative output" in the form of narrative fiction and poetry might play in the field of educational research. Drawing on philosophical insights from Biesta, and combining these with Nussbaum's articulation of the importance of literature to education, a case is made for the suitability of research that focuses on the production of a creative piece with an adjoining exegesis. The applicability of this approach to classroom English teachers and their students, as well as researchers in tertiary education whose task it is to prepare pre-service teachers for the English classroom, is then explored.
