SESSION 3: Wednesday 14th December 2022, 15:30-17:00 (GMT) – link to join

 

By Roy Hanney (Associate Professor of Media Production, Southampton Solent University) & Ben Harbisher (Head of MeCCSA Practice Network and Associate Professor at Coventry University).

 

Part 1: Roy Hanney: The best questions are often the last questions: making sense of experimental creative practice as research

Dr. Hanney will explore some of the issues that emerged from a recent paper that reflected on a creative practice project he ran in 2019. In particular, he will reflect on how the research question emerged after the practice and ask what this means for practice-based researchers engaged in experimental and sandbox projects.

 

Part 2: Ben Harbisher: Behavioural science, normative discourse, and the art of consent

The session will largely examine visual examples and advertising practices that emerged during the pandemic. In part this will also provide a critique of Thaler and Sunstein’s “Nudge” theory and its deployment during the crisis as a means to sway public opinion and shape conduct during the new normal.
