Chapter 1 Critical Openings in Performing Transdisciplinary Research as/in Rebellion
Author: Pamela Burnard

Abstract

Transdisciplinary research and writing performs differently. Transdisciplinary research emphasises matter, materiality and mattering (‘making-with’). Transdisciplinary research resists being forced into one dimension or generic type. Rather, it reconfigures disciplinary learning in ways that transgress disciplinary boundaries and offers a productive space to research and write within transdisciplinarity at the intersections of scientific and artistic ways of knowing and being with(in) the world. This chapter introduces the chapters featured in , where these transdisciplinary intersections are performed by scholars who are enthused to invite readers to travel together and emphasise matter, materiality and mattering or ‘making-with’ forms of arts and science interaction including reconfigurations of music, science, language, Indigenous and western timescapes, dance, circus arts and spoken word. Pushing against the known and flouting traditions is at the heart of the doing of rebellious transdisciplinarity, which appears at the frontiers of our knowledge. Through pushing against the known and flouting traditions we act out and reveal innovative, affective and sensual encounters and create new and more conscious transdisciplinary performances.

Why Science and Arts Creativities Matter is a ground-breaking text which significantly extends current understandings of STEAM and debates about individuation of disciplines vis-à-vis transdisciplinary theory. Drawing upon posthumanism, new materialism and enactivism, this collection of chapters aims to dwell further into the ways in which we come to know in relationship with the world. The text draws together a wide set of approaches and points of views to stimulate dialogue and awareness of the different ways in which we can extend the repertoire of human faculties for thinking and experiencing the world. A unique invitation is shared with readers to develop greater understanding of the contribution of education across the arts and sciences and to re-imagine our collective futures.

This book is a unique and timely volume that opens up several new lines of enquiry and arguments on STEAM education. It rebalances and readdresses the current emphasis in the literature around STEAM as another, newer opportunity to teach content. Instead, it brings a more specific focus on an entwining of contemporary theorists – putting theory to work – to extend the means for understanding and cultivating science and arts creativities, and make explicit key connections with the materiality of practices. This new go-to text offers a demonstration of how the latest research and theoretically engaged thinking (thinking through theory) on STEAM education can be put to work in practice.
