"The editor and authors engage themselves, each other, and wider communities creating a wealth of intricate insights, understandings, and possibilities about research-creation... Knowings and Knots promotes research-creation discourse and contributes to research discussions and debates in 21st century universities. Its value to K-12 educational environments, teachers, and teacher educators comes from persons sharing ideas about arts and humanities research-creation here."

Robert C. Kleinsasser, The Journal of Educational Research, July 2020

"This book opens up to the doing and undoing involved in the generation of research-creation, the makings of new forms of knowledge, and what it is to work at the interstices -- the interstices of thinking-feeling, of bodies, human, nonhuman, entangling with places and other communities, ecologically."

Jennifer Clarke, The Journal for Artistic Research, July 2020

"Research-creation transcends conventional research methods, being an integrated praxis that is devised and tailored for each project. This collection explores some of the charged, contradictory, and productive spaces in which research-creation practitioners and educators find themselves within academia."

Dorit Naaman, Alliance Atlantis Professor, Film and Media, Queen’s University

"Knowings and Knots speaks to a particularly prevalent question in the field, that is, how the results of research-creation can be presented within the frameworks of academic writing and publication. The solutions presented here are elegant, creative, rigorous, and thought-provoking."

Cara Berger, Lecturer, Theatre Studies, University of Manchester
