Further to Beryl's very interesting post about research methods and artistic
practice, I'd like to mention my own small corner of this area.
I'm currently undertaking research into the preservation of performing arts
and how and if performing arts professionals preserve their own work and use
the collections of others.
As an early career researcher, I don't want to attempt to reinvent the wheel
when doing this work, so I've set up an informal (very informal!) blog to
have a space to reflect in public on both my research questions and my
research methods as I progress through the project.
To kick off, I've posted a couple of questions there already, the answers to
which I'm sure are very obvious to members of this community! So, I'd
really welcome any comments and feedback, using the blog page 'comments' button.
It's at http://performingartsresearch.wordpress.com/.
All the best
Preservation Researcher, University of Glasgow
