We held our first group meeting at the start of term trying to get a sense of what each member wanted from the group and how we each viewed research. The group (like the school) is multidisciplinary but the common ‘threads’ of narrative, memory and place kept coming up and allowed us to develop our overall rationale;
“The lines group has a broad interest in narrative and storytelling which incorporates process, practice and structure. We are interested in how and why we tell stories in and through visual and material culture. We are developing a multi-disciplinary approach to research with outputs in talks, workshops, collaborative research and eventually new courses.”
One of the great things about the multidisciplinary approach is the opportunity to explore the topic from practice and theoretical perspectives and create new work.
