a journal of personal fieldwork experiences and impressions
Time to write!
As I settle into conducting fieldwork for a new and exciting project, and, in terms of scope, the largest project I've attempted to date, I hope to cultivate some best practice writing habits as a student and as a researcher.
My fieldnotes and core diary are, of course, sensitive, and won't ever be shared here. But as I carry out fieldwork, I read and see interesting things, I have theoretical notions I quite like, and I find so many amazing resources for learning or doing projects, that I would love to share. Doing so here is good for me, because reflecting on and polishing my personal notes forces me to articulate them much clearer, and stops me from falling into writing-lulls.
I also believe that sharing one's resources and knowledge with as many people as possible, outside of academia and institutions, is key to being a useful academic (ie., one whose knowledge and experience actually benefit wider publics) and I will build and practice those skills here, in the hopes that it will benefit more than just me.
This blog is therefore intended as a place of usefulness and extension. For me, and for you too! Thank you for coming to visit, and thank you for your patience as I gather momentum on my research and writing projects. I look forward to sharing generative content with you soon and into the future.
