Practice-Informed Pedagogies of Cultural Unlearning
The focus of this chapter is on the three key issues of culture specificity, intertextuality and performative dialogues, which become essential for framing the strategies for PaR (practice as research) with students from different cultures across the world. The author uses case studies from teaching experiences in India and from PaR projects made during her work as a visiting faculty for the MAIPR programme at Warwick University, in order to construct the ideas of ‘unlearning’ and ‘re-searching’ through performance-led strategies of art and scholarship.
