This session will look at the experience of doing fieldwork on development topics/in the Global South, and will take as its central theme the contrasts between the neat, formal presentation of research methods within textbooks and research proposals, and the often far more messy and contingent experience of research in practice. Drawing on the PhD experiences of post-doctoral researchers, it will encourage all participants to reflect on how they might negotiate these contrasts in practice, and capture this experience within the write-up of the PhD.
