Yet, education researchers and others within the social sciences were undeterred and ignored ‘the science-over-art hierarchy’ (Barone, 2012:x). , 1998:34). Such forms included painting, photography, collage, music, sculpture, film and dance which resulted in a critical (post-modern) turn in the field and new trends for social science research which required a skill base informed by emotionality, intellect, aesthetics and identity (Barone & Eisner, 1997). Critical Turn Two: Non-linguistic Forms and Blurred Genres This second turn embraced experimentation of non-linguistic forms of the arts as alternative ways of representing research data.

The artist-researcher/teacher perspective prompted a ‘methodology of situations’ through the combined act of creating/inquiring/ learning; a means of ‘moving in and out, and around ‘the work’ as well as making connections in a personal way’ (Irwin, Beer, Springgay et al, 2006). The authors refer to this process as the ‘rhizomatic 20 THE HISTORY AND DEVELOPMENT OF ARTS-RELATED RESEARCH relations of a/r/togrpahy,’ (Irwin et al, 2006:70), which we suggest promotes transdisciplinary knowledge as the artist/researcher/teacher explores thinking which transcends any one particular (disciplinary) realm.

Further, drawing on propositional knowledge outside the arts, researchers without an arts background bring forth other theoretical underpinnings and insights. The type of arts-related research that such researchers might engage with is more akin to artsinformed inquiry, also referred to by Ewing and Hughes (2008:516) as ‘expressive construction’, the focus being to communicate new understandings through creative means, yet without those creative means being considered as works of art. Whilst those new to the field of arts-related research may be interested in how the arts can enrich and extend qualitative methodologies and epistemologies (Daykin, 2008), tensions exist and issues of quality and representation remain.
