There are an increasing number of artists and practitioners undertaking doctoral research that incorporates practice. As a result, the parameters and forms of research itself have been expanded as doctoral students in the arts work towards building new research paradigms that articulate its complexities, particularities and peculiarities. This coincides with an increasingly explicit agenda in UK Higher Education in which Universities are required to embed research training to support the development of their doctoral researchers. Despite their perceived tension with one another, this chapter purposefully and critically brings together the two discourses of art-based research and Researcher Development. Drawing on two interrelated bodies of research, it proposes a new conceptual framework at the intersection of research–practice–pedagogy to open up spaces of possibility and establish new topologies of doctoral research in the arts in order to support doctoral researchers negotiating art-based research.
