28/4/21 - THE BLOG: an informal conversation with oneself.

Updated: Jul 14, 2021

I have just recently begun my PhD at the University of Huddersfield under the supervision of Dr Roddy Hunter, Dr Anneke Pettican and Dr Gareth Hudson.

Myself and Roddy had our first supervisory meeting/discussion/catch up yesterday evening to walk through the initial stages of my proposal and what my intentions are. Part of that discussion was to create/start a reflective journal/blog/archive (time stamped) on my thoughts, readings, practical output, experiences, visits, views/perceptions etc. This is the beginning of this reflective journal.

After the two hours of discussion, it was safe to say that a good chunk of progress was made which put me in a position of understanding what my first steps as a PGR student are to be...

My to do list - for today;

  • Research profile write up and send in

  • Read Sublime link Roddy sent - make notes/reflect

  • Create online reflective journal/blog

  • Rewatch 1st meeting

  • Find notes from meeting - save and review/log

  • Start wall map - dinner party

  • Skillsforge workshop 1:30 - 2:30

  • Rowan catch up 15:00 - 16:00

My to do list - for the month;

  • Continue building research map/journey

  • Dissect research proposal - strip back

  • Read! Read! Read!

    • Artists with PhD's - James Elkin

    • The Studio - Whitechapel Gallery
