Biography

Kip Jones BA MSc PhD is Director of the Centre for Qualitative Research and Reader in Performative Social Science (PSS) in the Faculties of Media & Communication and Health & Social Sciences at Bournemouth University in the United Kingdom. PSS uses tools from the Arts & Humanities in researching and/or disseminating Social Science research.

Jones acted as Executive Producer and Author of the award-winning short biopic RUFUS STONE (2012). This effort was the main output of a three-year project funded by Research Councils UK that explored the biographies of older gay and lesbian citizens and their experiences of rural life in Britain. This professionally made film was created by means of a unique collaboration between the film director, Josh Appignanesi (The Infidel), and Jones.

Jones’ accomplishments have been reported widely in the media, including: BBC Radio 4, BBC TV news, Times Higher Education, LSE Impact Blog, Sunday New York Times, International Herald-Tribune and The Independent.

QUOTE: "Kip Jones brings the genre of what he calls Performative Social Science forward with wide-ranging theoretical, academic, and artistic products in a various media that takes up how social scientists can use art for investigation and dissemination."...
