At the performance turn, this book takes a fresh 'how to' approach to Practice as Research, arguing that old prejudices should be abandoned and a PaR methodology fully accepted in the academy. Nelson and his contributors address the questions students, professional practitioner-researchers, regulators and examiners have posed in this domain.

Review quote

'...Nelson provides thoughtful guidance on many aspects of PaR projects: from planning to supervision, from documentation to exegesis... Nelson's book should be considered a major contribution to the field of practice as research... the material presented will be of use to anyone engaged in or considering PaR. Nelson's model is clear, effective and persuasively argued.' - Marc Silberschatz, Scottish Journal of Performance
