Abstract

Not all academic fields are created equal--what constitutes "research" can take on different forms in different disciplines. This is especially true in the performing arts, in which research can take the form of live performances, master classes, clinics, and workshops. Even with all of this, however, many performers in academia are also expected to be proficient in academic writing, through materials such as dissertations, publications in scholarly journals, course syllabi, and more. This talk will explore the various ways in which academics in the performing arts must balance performing and writing duties, as well as strategies for maintaining this balance and getting writing published.
