Overcoming Research Difficulties
The theme of research difficulties, and how to overcome them, has been raised each week by the Material Matters presenters and discussions. Whether the problem is how to deal with outlier data, how to access private policy documents, or even how to convince others that your research is not a joke (hello, Beautiful Hamilton), our presenters have faced it. They have also offered guides to overcoming such difficulties, be it through non-standard thesis forms, drawing on cultural theory, or incorporating Indigenous mythologies in their work. This week, we will bring the term’s diverse Material Matters talks into conversation, delving into what they can tell us about overcoming our own research difficulties from an interdisciplinary perspective. Who knows, perhaps MarsilioFicino’s15th century regimen of strict diet and habit will turn out to be the key?
