Fieldnotes and Sketchbooks: Challenging the Boundaries Between Descriptions and Processes of Describing

Research output: Book/ReportEdited BookOtherpeer-review


Every description of the world we inhabit embodies certain processes of describing. In Fieldnotes and Sketchbooks researchers from the fields of anthropology, architecture and fine art reflect on the descriptive practices characteristic of their respective disciplines, and the potential of alternative modalities of description to challenge the boundaries that divide them. Contributors focus on the interconnections between writing, imaging, drawing and reading, exploring the many ways in which different media and notational systems can be used in contexts of learning to facilitate the movement of knowledge across the three disciplines.
