Associate Professor Anne M Harris is a Principal Research Fellow (Research Associate Professor) in the School of Education and the Design and Creative Practice ECP.
Anne recently completed an ARC DECRA Fellowship investigating creative ecologies in secondary school and across the education lifespan.
Her research focuses upon the intersection of creativity, performance and digital media at both practice and policy levels, upon youth cultures and cultural, ethnic and gender diversities; and on performance and activism. The necessity of work across these areas—particularly the role of creative practice to inform/evoke/transform social change (specifically through public pedagogy, activism, and creative education)—is evidenced by the international uptake of my work and the ubiquitous hunger for more creative approaches to education, research and community/industry partnerships.
She is the creator and editor of the Palgrave Macmillan book series Creativity, Education and the Arts, the ABER co-editor of the Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy and on the editorial board of several journals and book series. She co-edited the following special issues: “Critical Approaches to Arts Based Research,” co-edited with Mary Ann Hunter and Clare Hall, UNESCO Observatory Multidisciplinary Research in the Arts (2014); “Creative Pedagogies” co-edited with Stacy Holman Jones, Departures in Critical Qualitative Research (2014); and “Sexuality, Culture and Creativity: Commodification and Contemporary Publics” co-edited with Yvette Taylor, Continuum: Journal of Media & Cultural Studies (2016).
