Call to Participate in Xcp: Streetnotes Winter 2004
Special Section: STREET AS METHOD
In the next issue of Xcp: Streetnotes, we will be displaying examples of coursework or assignments, which integrate an analysis of public places, buildings or streets. The idea is to show how observation or field techniques can be applied to everyday experiences, as a means of analysis, cultural production or critique.
Professors are asked to send for publication project synopses, where the “street” has become a site for fieldwork, reflection, or performance. Professors are also encouraged to recommend select students to submit samples of their own work as examples of successful course projects.
We hope that we will be able exhibit the various uses of fieldnotes (or streetnotes) in the various disciplines. As well as expand the possible observational techniques. Towards this end, we aim to publish short accounts of research assignments or research problems, along with a small collection of possible or innovative solutions.
We envision a display of innovative research projects from courses in Cultural Anthropology, Urban Studies, History, Literature, Geography and Visual Arts.
