Reading, Writing, and Research Methodologies 2017-18

Led by Steve Rushton

this way to Xpub 2017-18

"The Reading, Writing, and Research Methodologies Seminar is tailored towards (further) developing research methods within the first year of this master. By establishing a solid foundation of research skills, it will eventually prepare students for their Graduate research in the second year. Through reading core theoretical texts, they will establish a common vocabulary and set of references to work from. They will learn the practice of classic ‘essayistic methodologies’, including close reading, annotation, description and notation, students learn to survey a body of literature, filter what is relevant to their research and create comparative pieces of analysis. The seminar helps students to establish methodical drafting processes for their texts, where they can develop ideas further and structure their use of notes and references. The course takes as axiomatic that the perceived division between ‘practice’ and ‘theory’ is essentially an illusion."

Curriculum:

The seminar over the two trimesters will involve:

(a.) Identifying the object of your research: description and analysis of your work

(b.) Contextualizing your work through description and reflection on contemporary and historical practices.

(c.) Identify research material key to your practice.

(d.) Synopsis and annotation of key texts

(e.) Writing machines: creating methods for group and individual writing.

Throughout, there will be an emphasis on working collectively, whether in a larger discussion group or in smaller reading and writing groups.

Method for all the sessions

For every session there is a different task, which employs a different writing reading or notation method. I will set no assignments outside of the class, but you must commit to trying the methods I suggest for the day of the seminar. Over the three trimesters you will accumulate a collection of texts and approaches to writing which serve as a resource as you go into the second year.

Outcome at end of year: Text on Method

The specific outcome for the RW&RM seminar of 2017-2018 will be a 1500 word text which reflects on your own method and situates your work in relation to a broader artistic and cultural context. The various texts produced within the RW&RM seminar will serve as source material for your text on method. In common with all modules on the course RW&RM serves to support the other elements of the course. Therefore, the text on method will inform your Self-Evaluation at the end of the third trimester and provide the basis for your Graduate Project Proposal that you will produce in the fourth trimester.

The texts are coming along well

I think I managed to give feedback to most of you, either face to face or on the wiki

For my written feedback, you will find the link on the page you worked on today to [SteveSuggests...]

I think the main thing I should stress, because it came up a lot today. Please consider the power of giving PHYSICAL DESCRIPTIONS of your work which evoke and IMAGE in the mind of the reader.

After editing your text I have a final task for you all:

All the texts are structured with the headings

WHAT

HOW

WHY

When you have finished making your edits delete those headings and read the text without them. You will see it has a structure whereby the subject is introduced and described, the circumstances of its creation are described and your motivation for making it are clear.

I'll see you all in the attic space in HALF AN HOUR (16:30) and we will wind up."

Session thirteen

Text on Method

The specific outcome for the RW&RM seminar of 2017-18 will be a 1500 word text which reflects on your own method and situates your work in relation to a broader artistic and cultural context. The various texts produced within the RW&RM seminar will serve as source material for your text on method. In common with all modules on the course RW&RM serves to support your self-directed research. Therefore, the text on method will inform your Self-Evaluation at the end of the third trimester (the texts will be available to the tutors before this assessment) and provide the basis for your Graduate Project Proposal that you will produce in the fourth trimester.


What is 'method'?

'Method' is the way you work, your habits of working, it is what and how you make things. (When you start to reflect on your habits of working and reflect on how you make things, it becomes 'methedology')

PLAN

1) Gather ALL the material you have written about and around your work this year: the descriptions, the pitches, the interview, the room of silence text, your texts on other artists who you can relate to, your notes &c.

2) print it out if this helps and put and paste bits together to form a draft 'text on method' (I often do this when I am writing)

3) make a version on your computer, gathering your stuff on to one wiki page

4) ADD IMAGES and LINKS TO VIDEOS

5) upload onto wiki page (as PDF or wiki page)

6) 16:30 Recap and review work done

7) enjoy the summa evening!

Introduction: Give outline of the text and make the points you want to get across clear. (200 words)

Relation to previous practice

How does your current work connect to previous projects you have done? (resource: here you can use the descriptions made in the first sessions) (200)

Who helped you and how?

Relation to a larger context

Outline practices or ideas that go beyond the scope of your personal work. Write briefly about other projects or theoretical material which share an affinity with your project. It is simply about showing an awareness of a broader context, which you will later build upon in your project proposal and writing component in the second year (you may have covered some of this in your interview) (200) [what is annotation, in this case: what do you mean by this? S]

Research strands

Consider the possibilities open to you and where you would take your work in the near future. Don't just give a list of book titles or works but outline in your own words what issues are at stake (200)
