Play scripts as knowledge objects

Baker, Dallas J. (2018) Play scripts as knowledge objects. New Writing: The International Journal for the Practice and Theory of Creative Writing. pp. 1-5. ISSN 1479-0726


This paper outlines the ways that play writing acts as a research method and plays can be understood as knowledge objects or research outcomes. It also argues that Playwriting Studies, an emerging research field, is best conceived as a sub-discipline situated within the Creative Writing discipline.
