"The View from Here": Reflections on Disciplinary and Interdisciplinary Fields in "Openness-to-Experience...," by James McKenzie et al., and "The Thought of Doing Drama Scares Me to Death," by Peter Wright (RIDE 4.2).
Research in Drama Education, v5 n1 p104-12 Feb 2000
Discusses two articles related to the question of what is the nature of research in the actor-training context, where that training includes a major skills-acquisition component. Contends that one of the problems of interdisciplinary approaches is that while analogy may seem to illuminate a targeted disciplinary field such as teacher training, that analogy itself may be grounded in a misrepresentation of a source field such as actor training.
