Artistic Representation and Research Writing

TL;DR: The research journal Reflective Practice as mentioned in this paper deals with multi-professional research that addresses the development of practice through reflection on action in areas like social work, nursing, and education, and the present paper is about one specific professional practice in particular, that of professional research writing.
Abstract: The research journal Reflective Practice deals with multi-professional research that addresses the development of practice through reflection on action in areas like social work, nursing and education. The present paper is about one specific professional practice in particular—that of professional research writing—which is common to all professional research. It suggests how research writing can be consciously developed so as to be able to have action consequences, and that thinking about the forms of representation in art, what they are intending to communicate, about what and how they make their messages felt, might help us to become more conscious writers, better able to communicate critical ideas to a broader public.

TL;DR: The introduction to Critical Theory as discussed by the authors provides an excellent exposition of the Frankfurt School's critical theory and also offers an overview of American and European debates of the last decade concerning critical theory.
Abstract: Introduction to Critical Theory provides an excellent exposition of the Frankfurt School's critical theory. It also offers an overview of American and European debates of the last decade concerning critical theory. It is a sympathetic yet critical discussion of Horkheimer, Adorno, Marcuse and Habermas. While other works have examined these individual figures in more depth, no other single work examines them all with equal clarity and depth. It will take its place alongside Jay's Dialectical Imagination as an introductory but not elementary work. In critical theory, if in nothing else, Great Britain enjoys the advantage of the late comer. Critical theory in North America and West Germany is too familiar for a book such as this one to have been written.

  • ...In the article ‘The problem of how learning should be socially organized: Relations between reflection and transformative action’ Beach (2005) used an allegory to draw attention to this struggle, which, we think, illustrates the two lines of reasoning and also the complex historical and political issues involved when discussing this matter. Beach’s (2005) article was developed on the idea of reflective praxis as captured by Freire (2000) and Gramsci (1971) in their respective pedagogical approaches to codifications of practice and the encouragement of human agency....

  • ...‘Professionalism’ was too strongly linked to ‘technical rationality’ and positivism he wrote and only recognized practitioner knowledge as valid if it was based on theory (Beach, 2005), i.e. the practitioner is expected to acquire a certain set of predetermined tools to be applied to practice-related problems. However, he added that not all professions can be derived from a theoretical system. Some are formulated more on tacit knowledge. He gave the examples of social work, nursing and teaching, which were also broadly seen as having less status than other professions. However, he added that architects and therapists also use tacit knowledge in their work without this having the same effects. Tacit knowledge is not verbalized (and maybe is impossible to verbalize) and has, therefore, not been taught in universities. It is a situated knowledge that is only accessible when work is actually being carried out. This ‘knowing-in-action’ is a foundation for the action-related attitude that the experienced practitioner has and that Schön called ‘reflection-in-action’. Reflection-in-action means that practitioners reflect on professional action at the same time as they carry this action out. It is a central concept in The reflective practitioner. Reflection-in-action differs from reflection-on-action, which signifies reflection on practices before or after the actual action. Schön (1983, 1987) claimed that the work of architects, therapists and teachers is characterized by unique situations that demand special professional frame-making in order to create patterns of problems before it is possible to solve them and that they demand thinking that is not technical–rational, but is rather based on experience. Major themes are exposed in the above paragraph. These have been more thoroughly explored by Newman (1999). They concern the following:...

TL;DR: In this article, the authors document and describe their collaboration on a project investigating individuals' experiences of identity, participation, and belonging in higher education and pay particular attention to the formal set of principles that they developed to govern collaboration, ownership and authorship within the research project and the ways that those principles are enacted in their team.
Abstract: In this paper, we document and describe our collaboration on a project investigating individuals’ experiences of identity, participation, and belonging in higher education. We pay particular attention to the formal set of principles that we developed to govern collaboration, ownership and authorship within the research project and the ways that those principles are enacted in our team. Through our collaboration, we have come to acknowledge our research team as a space of belonging where all team members are accepted and welcomed. This sense of belonging provides a personal perspective on collaboration that is missing in most studies of research collaboration. We use the motif of ‘living ethics’ to capture defining qualities of the relationship deliberately cultivated between and among research team members. Through this narrative inquiry, we advance theoretical understandings of the notions of collaboration, belonging, and ethical research practices that can serve as potential models but not a blueprint f...

TL;DR: In this paper, a practitioner-researcher engaged in narrative writing and how this helped in what is referred to as a reflective odyssey, where the very act of writing when keeping a personal journal can act as a catalyst for ongoing reflective thought.
Abstract: The use of narratives in the social sciences has drastically increased throughout recent decades. They are mainly used as a way of collecting data and as a way of promoting professional development. This article sheds light on how a practitioner-researcher engaged in narrative writing and how this helped in what is hereby termed a reflective odyssey. More specifically, the main focus here is how the very act of writing when keeping a personal journal can act as a catalyst for ongoing reflective thought. Therefore, narratives were firstly used by the practitioner-researcher as a form of personal professional development. However, they also acted as data in the longitudinal process of understanding how narrative writing can aid in the continuous striving for improving professional practice. Original narrative extracts are presented throughout the text to back the claims made for narrative writing. This gives a unique opportunity to the reader to get a glimpse of the practitioner-researcher’s thought process...

TL;DR: Blumer as mentioned in this paper states that human beings act toward things on the basis of the meanings of things they have for them, and that the meaning of such things derives from the social interaction one has with one's fellows; these meanings are handled in, and modified through, an interpretive process.
Abstract: This is a collection of articles dealing with the point of view of symbolic interactionism and with the topic of methodology in the discipline of sociology. It is written by the leading figure in the school of symbolic interactionism, and presents what might be regarded as the most authoritative statement of its point of view, outlining its fundamental premises and sketching their implications for sociological study. Blumer states that symbolic interactionism rests on three premises: that human beings act toward things on the basis of the meanings of things have for them; that the meaning of such things derives from the social interaction one has with one's fellows; and that these meanings are handled in, and modified through, an interpretive process.

TL;DR: The sociological imagination is a sociological vision, a way of looking at the world that can see links between the apparently private problems of the individual and important social issues as discussed by the authors.
Abstract: C Wright Mills is best remembered for his highly acclaimed work The Sociological Imagination, in which he set forth his views on how social science should be pursued Hailed upon publication as a cogent and hard-hitting critique, The Sociological Imagination took issue with the ascendant schools of sociology in the United States, calling for a humanist sociology connecting the social, personal, and historical dimensions of our lives The sociological imagination Mills calls for is a sociological vision, a way of looking at the world that can see links between the apparently private problems of the individual and important social issues Leading sociologist Amitai Etzioni brings this fortieth anniversary edition up to date with a lucid introduction in which he considers the ways social analysis has progressed since Mills first published his study in 1959 A classic in the field, this book still provides rich food for our imagination
