Grappling with Things: on the practical use of material and visual sources in your PhD
24 November 14:30 to 17:00, Villa Salviati, Sala del Torrino
The EUI Visual and Material History Working Group hosts its first workshop of the academic year geared towards advanced researchers to write about visual and material sources within their research.Are you wondering how to include in your research and writing visual and material sources you found?
This workshop is designed to get you writing about your material. Equipped with an object and a questionnaire all participants will engage in a writing exercise tackling description, analysis, contextualisation and interpretation. We will discuss writing examples, but really want you to come out of this session with a better grasp on how to include fonds, objects, visual art, photography and so much more within your argument and chapter/article writing.️
To participate it is essential that you bring the image of a visual source or an object that you want to discuss and work on in this session.
STAY TUNED! For those anticipating or interested in working with visual and material sources, but have none as of yet, an introduction to ‘Grappling with things’, discussing questionnaire, databases and bibliography will follow in March.
