New episodes on the REC podcast series

REC met with Patricia Leavy, editor of the Handbook of Arts-Based Research (Guilford Press, 2018) and Louis-Claude Paquin, professor at the École des médias UQAM, to ask them six questions on the emergence, definition, methodologies, challenges and future of research-creation.

Dr. Patricia Leavy is an independent sociologist, best-selling author and editor. She has published extensively in the field of qualitative and mixed methods research and is a leading proponent of Arts-Based Research (ABR). Using fiction-based research as one of her methods, she has published critically acclaimed novels, including the Candy Floss Collection, a 2020 edition of three of her previous social fiction books.
