About this Event

You're Invited!

Please save the date for the much anticipated Creative Research Interventions in Methods and Practice (CRIMP) lab launch and public lecture by Professor Felicity Colman.

The CRIMP laboratory supports a community of researchers working at the intersection of creative practice as a research method, visual sociology and anthropology. Following on from the foundational work of Celia Lury and Nina Wakeford in Inventive Methods: The Happening of the Social, the fields of visual sociology and anthropology have continued to expand methodologically, as the roles that digital and creative methods play in generating research findings have become increasingly useful in sociology and anthropology. CRIMP explores interdisciplinary connections between socially engaged arts practice, visual sociology and anthropology. Focusing on understanding creative economies of user generated media; and effecting and mapping social change, with a view to explicating the role that digital worlds and practices play in facilitating social change, lab members work across a broad spectrum of material, social and cultural contexts in examining how methods for ‘understanding’ the social also re-make and re-shape the social in ways that can be employed to effect social change. Responsive, contingent, creative and respectful research practices characterise the work of this lab’s members.

Felicity Colman is Professor of Film and Media Arts and Director of Research, Programmes and Development at Kingston University, London. Her research focuses on developing models and methodologies for art and screen based analysis, in particular she is concerned with technologically instigated moments of disruption, innovation, and change, events which are central to understanding how creativity works, and what forms it manifests, in terms of cultural values, artistic practices, communication models, and industrial memory forms.

Professor Colman will be present on creative research interventions in method and practice and will launch the CRIMP lab with us at an after lecture drinks and networking session. Please join us on December 19th, more information to come!

Date: Dec 19th

Time: Public Lecture 1-2 pm, CRIMP Launch Drinks 2 - 3:30 pm

Location: RMIT City Campus, Garden Building. 10. 05. 89.
