The yearly symposium of the Research Centre for Arts, Autonomy & the Public Sphere (lectoraat AOK, Zuyd Hogeschool) takes place on Wednesday March 13, Herdenkingsplein 12. The theme of this year’s symposium is:
Sharing experiences and challenges of making and translating fieldnotes
This one-day symposium focusses on a theme that most of us encounter in our research: making field notes. Our researchers do ethnography in a wide range of contexts: from educational settings in art classes to classical music rehearsals, urban spaces or discussion meetings. How to turn observations in these contexts into valuable field notes? And how do these different practices shape the kinds of field notes we take? During the day (from 10.30h to 16h), we will share experiences, discuss and question ways of making jottings, turning them into field notes, and ways of analysing them.
