Chapters on Performative Social Science by Kip Jones in four international text books

Chapters on Performative Social Science by Kip Jones

in four international text books

Recently lauded by Sage Publications, they described Performative Social Science as pioneering work that will ‘propel arts-led research forward’ and be a 'valued resource for students and researchers for years to come’. 

 Performative Social Science (PSS) is an arts-based method of research and dissemination developed by Jones at Bournemouth University over ten years and is recognized internationally. Relational Aesthetics provides the philosophical bedrock on which PSS has been built.

 Relational ‘Art’ is located in human interactions and their social contexts. Central to it are inter-subjectivity (“the psychological relation between people” or social psychology), being together, the encounter and collective elaboration of meaning (Bourriaud, 1998). These are philosophical principles that are central to PSS as a rich methodological development in qualitative research.
