This one-day course alerts participants to the potential of performance as a method for research in the humanities and social sciences, and the utility of performance in widely disseminating research findings. It will use the work of the course leader’s own research-led production company Sidelong Glance as a focal point for discussion. After introducing the company and its past, current, and planned future productions, Sidelong Glance founder/director Dr Eleanor Lybeck will perform the original one-woman show Wild Laughter; this performance will be followed by an audience Q&A. The second half of the course will be dedicated to the practicalities of production, including funding applications to academic and non-academic sources, and group and individual sessions during which participants will have the opportunity to discuss their ideas for performance projects emerging out of their own research.
