    Creative Research Methods

    By Zahra Hussain

    It is important to decolonize our way of carrying out field research in regional areas. This workshop is developed at the intersections of research strategies and techniques used in the disciplines of art and social sciences in order to overlap these for effective outcomes. It not only highlights methodologies but also puts forth the basics of semiotics in terms of deconstructing images, conversations and local practices. Creative Research Methods workshop assignment required the participants to jot down their research strategy for the proposed projects. This helped participants orient their interests.
