¿Sabes cuántas personas han muerto en el mundo por hablar en público? Si crees que la respuesta es «ninguna», te equivocas. William Henry Harrison, noveno presidente de Estados Unidos (1773-1841), falleció después de dar su discurso de investidura. Los hechos sucedieron así: cuentan que pronunció su alocución del 4 de marzo sin estar lo suficientemente abrigado, por lo que murió un mes después... de neumonía. Hoy en día para casi el 90% de las profesiones se necesita hablar en público. Si eres emprendedor, es imprescindible que sepas hacer una efectiva y breve presentación para explicar cómo es tu empresa y venderte a posibles clientes (es lo que se viene llamando conversación del ascensor o elevator pitch). Si eres un profesional que pronuncia conferencias, conocer cómo se hace un Pecha Kucha es básico para aprender a sintetizar y controlar los tiempos. Si eres periodista tu oportunidad está en saber escribir discursos con Programación Neurolingu ̈ística (PNL), un trabajo de presente y futuro. Si diseñas presentaciones visuales para ti o para otros tienes que estar a la última en cuanto a tendencias de comunicación. Y, si no empleas la oratoria en tu vida profesional, en la personal también encontrarás oportunidades para utilizarla: en un brindis en una boda, al defender tu punto de vista ante la comunidad de vecinos o hacer una pregunta en un debate.

Art Practice as Research, Second Edition continues to present a compelling argument that the creative and cultural inquiry undertaken by artists is a form of research. The text explores themes, practices, and contexts of artistic inquiry and positions them within the discourse of research. Sullivan argues that legitimate research goals can be achieved by choosing different methods than those offered by the social sciences. The common denominator in both approaches is the attention given to rigor and systematic inquiry. Artists emphasize the role of the imaginative intellect in creating, criticizing, and constructing knowledge that is not only new but also has the capacity to transform human understanding.
