First PhD the best - disconnect between written and practical aspect - practice-based PhD - bonsai - should have all the virtues of the 1000 word thesis.....Georgia Story Telling...You're giving a lecture of the horse...drawing attention tot he bits that work....Touliatou... The correct address to the problem - question, context and method...I could have used other methods...lay out alternatives...and say why it doesn't work...

British Model - putting self into a field of expertise...external is queen or king...and what you're doing is saying: here's the field of expertise. Here's the gap in knowledge that's not yet address... The things you have to go in with... Need to have research agency...you could go on to supervise someone else's PhD...someone whose work in the field and should be noticed...you're on your way...

PhD students often want to finish...consequences of major corrections for months...Cannot go into a viva with a text with any mistakes in it...the number of times, things creep in...Your supervisors aren't proof readers...

Helen Turner - proof readers...

Base level - mistakes - really put an internal/external off...they have to be eliminated... Go in with the attitude that you're not going to get into correction but you're going to be humbled Use your examiners...get them to explain...Try and fight the fire...sounds like it might be relevant...try and shut it down... Candidate: Be polite but firm..."that's interesting, but"

Take the text with your...with all the bits your might wish to refer to...yellow tags...that you wish to refer to...Always okay to ask further questions... The examiner has to explain why they've asked questions they've asked Always get in trouble if you appeal to experience or intution...to employ a delay by further question...You don't get points for hard work...you always have to come back to what you said. They cannot reflect on your character or the institution. BUILD YOUR CASTLE... You need to be in command of your field...This might a first glance like current debates in ethnography Need to be research-aware enough to know... Think in terms of islands...where you live...you can do it negatively....Who isn't on the island... You have to know why your work matters in relation to the work of others that matters... Yes, I have read it and where it's relevant... Questions around translation...Focus on these aspects You don't have any theorist in there that don't matter...and that's the worst possible thing you can do... When you work with big theorists...you have to identify the debates around the issue...Discursive footnotes are very useful..... Harvard - about people signaling hi there Brian... No...tend to go for poetic PhDs...students emphasizing their own subjectivity...problematizing subjectivity...What never works...putting "me" back into this...Could all the human beings walk away and get at the research that's i...for further research...Witgenstein...within every sitatution...positing self in field...you have to imagine another in the field to use Second practice - how do we understand art and design...Psycholanalysis...researcher and artist...Artist with a problem...move to research...Second practice...around and with the logic of the problem...an insentive...The ball was something she was addressing--it just got bigger and bigger...disturb your life world...gestalt...danger of finding otu tstuff that you don't like/understand... Prevert...I can't finish it....The whole thesis needs to work together...Argument works together...Practice doesn't speak for itself because it has features that perhaps need pointing to, but it can't always supply it's own manual...

Alan Sokal "Transgressing the Boundaries" Social Text as a time bomb It's extremely important that do is archeology The explanation for L's You have to have an explanation...Reflection... The being of Duchamp but messing up Richard Mutt...deliberately created a kind of sub version...Dedoof... All you can do of not using proper academic here I am as your symptom...Now my move is to make you think of the consequences of this... the reason I'm not using academic language at this point is this...you need to be in control... Dilthy...pre conscious...theories of practice...Subject positioning...Freud and Dilthy...(preconcsioucs knowledge) and unconcious...practice is preconcious...when I practice...I am more or less aware of what I'm doing as an artist...unconcious...big things...Monster in a Text...

Paul Ryan...Minor corrections...If and when cooked...Is is very much about working through...bit by bit... Point 9: Are you researcher enough? Examiner...things can be assertained first...does Marsha look like a researcher? How can I find out? Bibliographies...The examiner wants to talk about the problem and how it's located in the field of inquiry. Focus on Why rather than How? You need to say Why? What were my moves...and how did those moves correspond to the state of art in the field...You're defending a case...your client is yourself...there's always a WHY! The best students find a way to create bonsais...Show me the precise relationship between the writing and artifact...British a bit more diffident...not about here's my contribution to knowledge...euphenism.... Club system...London Library...beating heart of English life.... QAA level descriptors for PhDs... Have you designed a good enough vehcile to do the work you want it to do..apparatus...did it get you to where you wanted to go...Toyota or Cadillac...QProblem, context, method... What are the debates within which my practice fits - where are the questions - Every question you ask has a fate attached to it...and that fate puts you in a place and what is the place... Contextual review - context of your question...your problem...Levi Strauss - intro to structure of anthro - takes standard question...do all organization exist...and lofok at various ways of addressing this problem in anthrology...brining in something outside and this allows me to address the question...Who tried to pull Sword...preexising problem....or there's a failure to frame - new problem...

Elkins - PhD...Elkins ones...seven kinds....buch of ways to approach the writing question...
