Creative Manoeuvres is a collection of new writings on a topic of enduring interest: the role of creative practice in the formation of knowledge. The contributors to this collection are primarily creative writers, working in poetry, fiction, nonfiction and ethnography. Many include the visual or performing arts within their practice; and all are academics as well as creative writers. Their chapters move the study of creative writing beyond subjective accounts of ‘how I write’ towards broader issues of how knowledge is addressed by, or incorporated into, or embodied in, art. Each chapter also does double duty as a case study on approaches to creative and research work, both describing and critically exploring the strategies, or ‘creative manoeuvres’, these writers have adopted to advance their practice in both creative and critical domains. In this way, the book not only exemplifies moves in the contemporary academy to understand better the value creative practice can offer to the university, but also provides a rich and engaging set of narratives about ways of being, ways of making and ways of coming to know. In both practical and theoretical modes, it contributes to the ongoing questions about creativity and/versus scholarship that have been debated over recent decades.

Ever wanted to ask Nostradamus for the winning lotto numbers or Napoleon about his complex? How about Van Gogh about the whole ear episode, or if Frida might consider a brow wax? Michael Stusser has done it for you in this book of imagined Q&A interviews with 45 of the most celebrated, notorious, and dead people in history. Based on his column in the popular and acclaimed magazine, “Mental Floss,” this collection of conversations is incredibly funny, but the bulk of the content is based on serious research, so in addition to laughing, you’re actually learning real history. Subjects include Alexander the Great, Buddha, Caligula, Winston Churchill, Salvador Dali, Leonardo DaVinci, Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, Sigmund Freud, J. Edgar Hoover, Harry Houdini, Joan of Arc, Genghis Khan, Abraham Lincoln, Karl Marx, Edgar Allen Poe, Oscar Wilde, and dozens more. These guys might not have a pulse, but boy, can they talk.
