Time and Memory (and research(er) narratives)
This quote caught my eye:
“Time and memory are a fussy firm on interior decorators, always shifting the furniture about and redesigning and even reassigning rooms” (p.28)
Banville, John (2012). Ancient Light. London: Viking/Penguin.
A timely reminder, if ever we needed it, of the great importance of maintaining a Research(er) Journal THROUGHOUT the process and not rely on memory and reconstructions of what happened in our research and of our reasons for doing it in the way that we did. Memory is fickle and RJ entries are endlessly fascinating when reviewed later (eg for the thesis drafting process).
