    Over the past few decades, research on the arts as they relate to and intersect with other disciplines has grown enormously. For example, fields including art education, creative arts therapies, STEAM, and neuroscience and art, have grown exponentially as evidenced by courses taught, conference themes, new journals, funded research grants. Additionally, the emergence and explosion of the arts-based research paradigm in education and the social sciences, as a new model for how to conduct research, and an alternative to traditional qualitative and quantitative research, further points to the increased interest in how the arts operate in concert with other fields. The Art Plus series explores art at the intersection of one or more other disciplines or lenses. The series will publish original monographs and edited volumes.

Social Fictions (Brill/Sense)

Patricia Leavy, Series Creator and Editor

https://www.sensepublishers.com/catalogs/bookseries/social-fictions-series/

The Social Fictions series emerges out of the arts-based research movement. The series includes full-length fiction books that are informed by social research but written in a literary/artistic form (novels, plays, and short story collections). Believing there is much to learn through fiction, the series only includes works written entirely in the literary medium adapted. Each book includes an academic introduction that explains the research and teaching that informs the book as well as how the book can be used in college courses. The books are underscored with social science or other scholarly perspectives and intended to be relevant to the lives of college students—to tap into important issues in the unique ways that artistic or literary forms can.
