CAAA Policy Brief

Creation, Performance, Research: Multiple Relationships and Possibilities

Considers issues of relationships among creation, performance and research within specific arts disciplines, across the arts, and in the relationships of the arts with other disciplines. This policy brief is intended to assist faculties and administrators in looking at these issues comprehensively and strategically as local potentials are reviewed and decisions are made. It addresses questions of equivalency and parity in considerations of faculty work, various definitions of research and their ramifications in arts contexts, multidisciplinary issues, and questions associated with policy and curriculum development.
