Heavier than Air

Anne Harris, co-author of the play, will be discussing, alongside with the director and cast of the play, the ways in which qualitative research and performing arts converge to rethink research methodologies and research communication in humanities and social sciences.

‘Heavier than Air’, a theatre play based on interview data from research conducted with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) teachers working in different educational settings in Australia. Since 2015, this play, devised by Anne Harris (RMIT University) and Stacy Holman Jones (Monash University), has been staged in Australia, Singapore, USA, and Scotland. 

Proudly hosted by The Centre for Creative-Relational Inquiry.
