Capturing Experimental Research Cultures
Transnational and national research bodies are pushing towards a policy of open access publishing for all research outcomes that they fund. Raw data sets are now published openly alongside the more typical research papers, yet the emergence of new research cultures such as in artistic research face difficulties in adapting to the traditionally text-centric mode of research publication. The panel brings together the editors of the new open access Journal for Research Cultures to address these questions alongside researchers Josh Harle and Margarete Jahrmann. Harle will discuss his process of ‘gonzo research’ while Jahrmann will share her experience of ‘ludic research’, and how experimental research cultures could be best “captured” and published openly to the public. Matthias Tarasiewicz will present the conceptual framework that spans from 'Coded Cultures' to 'Research Cultures' and will talk abut the background and future of the research platform.
The upcoming Journal for Research Cultures is edited by Andrew Newman, Matthias Tarasiewicz and Teresa Dillon. The journal investigates epistemic practices in arts and technology with a focus on the development of new research methodologies within transdisciplinary practices.
The Journal for Research Cultures is an international peer reviewed open access journal and platform for the communication and presentation of experimental research practices within the arts, technology and humanities. The primary aim of JRC is to stimulate a critical inquiry of the technology and methodologies that are used within these emerging research cultures.
