Integral Research: Art and Imagination-Based Methods
School of Consciousness and Transformation TSD 7098 3.00
Art-based inquiry and "image work" are ways of knowing and perceiving that often precede, complement, or de-center literal description most commonly attached to qualitative inquiry. This course explores some of the modalities of art-based and image-based methods of inquiry through theory and the study of exemplars. Methodological issues discussed include the role of critical subjectivity, the nature of knowledge and its relationship to modes of discourse and presentation; and the applications of art-based or image work for studying psychospiritual phenomena.
