Collage-making for interdisciplinary research skills training in Northern Ireland
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter presents the authors' practice of collage-making for identifying and extending ideas for research in a course entitled Creative Thinking and Problem Solving (CTPS) as a part of a postgraduate research training programme. It explores the context, processes and outcomes of the CTPS course and the origins of the authors' decision to introduce collage into this course. Collage-making builds on the work of theorists such as V. J. Janesick who argues that creative methods allow researchers to access more intuitive processes that are often less consciously used in research. The first paper-based collage was an exploration of women's suffrage in Northern Ireland. This collage was typical of all of those made with paper in that they were not constrained by the page size and allowed individual pieces of text to extend beyond the edge of the page.
