qualitative research, but also to engage students in discussions about the real-life difficulties of developing and using these new methods in workplaces. What we share in this chapter is an arts-based research programme that we developed called ‘Stop Stress’. This theatre-based action research programme was designed for people working in the healthcare sector in Denmark. In this chapter, we illustrate how the creative potential of bringing together the arts, adult learning and collective enquiry helped the participants explore and alleviate the stressful aspects of their

identifiable roles that are taken up by participants within them (participants who, of course, come and go with the passage of time); repeated arguments around the importance of respecting these debates and their outcomes; and – perhaps most significant of all – a predictable, seemingly near-inevitable, outcome which is known in advance to those parliamentarians present at these debates. Approached in this way, the bounded, formulaic nature of these debates renders proscription a conceptually and methodologically promising case through which to explore the operation of

perspective. Consequently, much of the emphasis is on large-scale flows of information and people across the globe and on the digital practices of ‘forced’ or economic migrants, as opposed to the lifestyle-leaning typology of my participants. There is very little language or semiotics-based (ethnographic) work on diasporic digital representation in general, with the notable exception of Naomi Wells’s research on the Latin American community in London (Huc-Hepher and Wells, 2021 ), and a dearth of critical thinking on the French online diasporic presence in particular

the band’s participation in public debate. Whilst engagement with English folk music or dance is not always openly or primarily articulated as a direct manifestation of a desire to express one’s English identity, it is significant that a growing number of English folk participants do talk about having actively sought out English folk music or dance, or about their folk activity as an expression of their English identity or search for their English ‘roots’. 135 Englishness 7.2.1 Englishness as historically rooted Looking towards musical and dance traditions that

occurrence over time of processes of heritagisation. In response to the primarily sonorous qualities of this event, listening has been a principal research method. In contrast to what usually happens in other rituals involving bells around the period of Carnival in Europe, in San Mauro the cowbells are not used to create a clash of chaotic clangs but rather a series of regular rhythmic sequences. The participants wear a costume but do not mask their faces. In existing research on festivals involving humans and animal bells, the role of face masks and of sonic chaos has

affinity groups, the action of each participant will be different, and it is the recognition of that difference that comprises one of the group’s core characteristics (McDonald, 2002). The action and ethic of such operational logics expresses ‘fluidarity’ (McDonald, 2002) characterised by individuality, mobility and more unstable forms of identity, with temporary and ever-changing coalitions of actors, rather than solidarity in terms of more stable modes of organisation and the relationship between person and group. Key to the horizontal perspective on the operation of

­requently deficient communicative conditions including poor acoustics and the sometimes breathtaking speed at which participants speak and at which things ­generally proceed. The defining characteristic of District Court language, and the ­explanation for its inaccessibility is thus not its legal ­characteristics but its more general ‘insider’ nature, or the fact that access to the language of the District Court is restricted to regulars or insiders – those with experience and who share a specific k ­ nowledge base that includes aspects of the law, District Court p ­ rocedure and

citizens from oppressive machines. Instead, performance art probes, disassembles and reassembles the machines that constitute the city while demanding active interpretation. In this reflective journey through performance, unforeseen assemblages emerge between incongruous actants, which in turn generate narratives that are much richer than any forms of technocentric narratives. Some of these narratives extend beyond the performance itself, and into quotidian urban life: a beer mat becomes a prop for an intense conversation between a participant and a bystander; a

It explores Rohingya narratives relating to their identity documents and citizenship with a focus on how and why they resist the categories and labels that frame them domestically and internationally as ‘stateless’.

experienced poor leadership.5 All the participants in the oral histories were white and all but two were women.6 Of the twenty participants, the earliest commencement date of training was 1942 and the latest was 1979. Approximately half returned to older adult nursing as either a registered nurse or as an enrolled nurse.7 Of those who did not return to older adult care, several remarked that they would never return. All the participants articulated a great concern for the older people in their care and disquiet over how the system, the medical staff and often the senior
