Speaking Data and Telling Stories examines the interdependent relationship between method (Data Verbalization) and practice (performance). Data Verbalization is about communicating and disseminating research data using performance approaches and techniques such as; spoken word, jazz, hip-hop, and reggae theatrics.

Martin Glynn calls for the development of performance-driven research dissemination that seeks to bring urgent attention to minority, excluded, and marginalized perspectives within research dissemination as a whole. Employing the data verbalization method creates an exciting new proposition that can give progressive researchers a unique and distinct voice, alongside generating significant reach and impact beyond the academy, conference, and peer reviewed journal.

The book will be an invaluable resource for researchers, scholars, and related practitioners who want to strengthen their ability to communicate and disseminate research data using live performance / spoken word approaches and techniques. It will also provide guidance for students and researchers wanting to generate wider environmental, social, and cultural impact using research data creatively.

Martin Glynn PhD is an internationally renowned criminologist, critical race scholar, theatre director, and dramatist. His research focuses on race and crime, black masculinities, and performance driven research dissemination.

In our time of metrics, league tables and depersonalised measurements, Martin Glynn's book is a welcome relief. A powerful account of a more creative, impassioned method for producing and disseminating research. Recommended for all who believe in the role of art in the academy - and know that research is diminished without its presence. James Thompson, Professor of Applied Theatre, University of Manchester Martin Glynn offers readers the theoretical and practical foundations of data verbalization through intimate revelations of his personal journey. Through the power of storytelling, in both traditional and contemporary genres, Glynn provides examples and guidance for the development of innovative counter-narratives. This is a rich handbook on the potential of performative art forms as acts of resistance, social justice, and personal healing.
