This one-day PhD workshop hosted by the Bartlett and the Slade, and funded by LAHP, the London Arts and Humanities Partnership, focuses on ethical dilemmas in art and architectural research and practice.
The day will include presentations from Bartlett and Slade PhD students, as well as talks from invited respondents, Professor Barb Bolt (Victoria College of the Arts, University of Melbourne), Making it Real: iDARE (innovation. Design. Art. Research. Ethics) and Professor Estelle Barrett (Institute of Koorie Education, Deaking University), The Ethics of Intercultural Research. Among their other research activities, Barb and Estelle are the co-editors of three books on creative research practice: Material Inventions: Applying Creative Arts Research (London: I.B.Tauris, 2014); Carnal Knowledge: Towards a ‘New Materialism’ through the Arts (London: I.B. Tauris, 2013); and Practice as Research: Approaches to Creative Arts Enquiry (London: I.B. Tauris, 2007). Dr David Roberts will also be presenting aspects of the ethical protocols he is preparing as part of the Bartlett Ethics Commission and Rowena Lamb will speak about the Ethics and Integrity initiative she is leading at UCL.
