'Wasting Time: Duration and Research'

Davis, G. (Speaker)

Activity: Academic talk or presentation typesInvited talk


ECA programmed a series of talks by its Chancellor's Fellows to take place across 2015 and 2016. These talks were not focused so much on individual research projects, as on how research is done by the Fellows: the methods and tactics they employ, the ways in which methodological innovation is forged, and the links between research materials and methodological approaches. My own talk was on boredom and slowness, and on how researching the topic of boredom in relation to the moving image can involve substantial amounts of what others might see as 'wasted time'.
