"What does it mean to research through creative practice?"

Keynote Speaker:
Dr Kate Carruthers Thomas (School of Social Sciences, Birmingham City University)

CARU brings together artists and researchers for yet another day of cross-disciplinary exploration into creative research. This year, we are delighted to welcome Dr Kate Carruthers Thomas as the keynote speaker, who will open the event with a talk on ‘Creative Practice as Research’.

Dr Kate Carruthers Thomas is a Senior Research Fellow and Athena SWAN Project Manager at Birmingham City University, UK. Kate specialises in interdisciplinary enquiry into contemporary higher education, gender and inequalities, using poetics and graphics as well as more conventional academic forms to present and discuss her work. Kate is an experienced presenter and workshop facilitator, a published poet and an accidental cartoonist! @drkcarrutherst
