PhD Toolkit – Praxis

DRN Events – Dr Edwin Coomasaru

  • 25 March 2021
  • 2:00 – 3:30 pm
  • Online Event

This is an event for DRN members only. You can find out more about the network here.

This session will ask how political, ideological or theoretical positions could, or should, be incorporated into our work as PhD researchers. This workshop will ask members to reflect on their own positionality and values and consider how that impacts their work. We will then formulate an approach to describing and applying these values as part of their praxis as researchers.

This event is part of the DRNs PhD Toolkit series which will run parallel to the British Art History in Practice series.
