This article is a narrative exposition of collaborative research performed at
Bergamo in October 2001. As a performance of research, we hoped to
extend the involvement of audience/participants and to problematize both
method and articulation of lives lived (Knowles & Cole, 2001) by using
art forms in (re)searching the nature and possibilities of socially
constructed and experienced boundaries. The primary foci of our work are
(1) the relationship of research and/to/with art, (2) the nature and effects of
socially constructed boundaries in research/life/curriculum, and (3) the
nature of collaboration. We used the media of dance, poetry and readers’
theater to both theorize and present data about socially defined roles and
identities and our responses them.
