Abstract

This provocation poses questions of various sizes ‘inspired’ by some of the written publications that have theorised the concept of Practice as Research and drawing on lessons learnt from supervising PhD’s (with and without PaR). It consists of ‘musing’ rather than a proper argument and makes reference to feminism. Some readers might find both of these things very irritating. Throughout the course of its musing, questions asked include: ‘Is it acceptable to start a sentence with ‘And’ in academic writing?; ‘What does and does not have the status of ‘theory’? And who does and does not have the status of a theorist? and ‘What is a proper argument?’ No answers are provided and no conclusions drawn.
