The creative arts often has to do with the production of aesthetic narratives. It involves experimentation with artistic expressions and often results in a form of scholarship that is grounded in terrain-specific practices.
Joanna Mansbridge’s research focuses on theatre and performance practices across cultures, geographies, and media. Collier Nogues’s practice-based research explores innovative approaches to archival materials, both in cross-disciplinary collaborations with artists and historians in the DOCUMENT project, and in her own documental poetry. Tongle Sun’s work focuses on using narratives to ‘unpack’ study abroad experiences and ‘negotiate’ identity development. Evelyn Chan’s ongoing work on public hospital doctors’ narratives will result in a collection of fictionalized doctors’ stories. Eddie Tay's creative work consists of street photography and poetry set in Hong Kong and Singapore. His practice-based research experiments with poetic autoethnography and the role of the street photographer as a flaneur mapping out urban affects. Suzanne Wong’s work focuses on creative writing. She has published several short stories.
