So, what’s it all about?

This blog is intended to provide a place to share and explore the ideas and issues raised through my research.

One of my primary concerns is the potential for language to both reveal and obscure our experiences of the world and our relationships with others. Attempting to write about my academic research in a non-academic format will, I hope, challenge my own writing practice, and help me to think more deeply about the work words must do to express our thoughts.

My intention is to try to write something every week which reflects upon my activities during fieldwork and the things I am thinking about – so be prepared for my musing on everything from Bakhtin to boats!
