Research publication is one of the threshold concepts of research practice, and therefore of teaching research. The notion of publishing one's research is constantly shifting in response to technological and philosophical debates. From the Medieval studia generalia, in which prospective applicants had to orally defend themselves against vocal members of the audience, through to the current REF processes that puts impact value on individual research publications, research publication is in constant flux. The OECD redefinition of research in 2002 to include performative work was just another critical incident in a constantly changing notion of what counts as research publication. As with other educational practice, the hegemony associated with research and research publication often inhibits creativity. Students may need to be encouraged to constantly question the unchallenged assumptions associated with both research and research publication.

This presentation, in a performative mode of a 40 minute cabaret, models one of the creative ways in which research and in fact any topic can be disseminated or taught. 'My idea of academic cabaret involves a spoken monologue around a specific topic interspersed with songs chosen to advance the central theme of the cabaret topic through their lyrics' (Hill, 2015, 153).
