Book Chapter in ‘Routledge Handbook of Intercultural Arts Research’ (2016)

I co-wrote a book chapter called "Intercultual Exchange: Interventions and Intraventions of Practice Based Research" published in Routledge Handbook of Intercultural Arts Research by Routledge in the UK.

Intercultual Exchange: Interventions and Intraventions of Practice Based Research

Adrienne Boulton-Funke, Rita L. Irwin, Natalie LeBlanc & Heidi May

In this chapter, we enact and explore an intercultural exchange among four individuals involved in a project designed to create an intervention in an art teacher education program. What became evident is how the intercultural exchange of practice-based research is an ontological approach to becoming inquirers. We argue that in our pursuit of becoming, intervention and intravention formed a contiguous and generative relationship that provoked intercultural exchanges about ontological processes in practice based research.
