Sample text

The creation of these six renderings was influenced by one of Mieke Bal’s suggestions to focus on methodological concepts rather than methods when doing research. The purpose of the renderings is not to tell others how to use a/r/tography, but rather to provide a way of understanding what living and working as an a/r/tographer might mean. In this way, the renderings help to provoke personal engagements with the concepts and make space for individuals to conceptualize their own concepts for making meaning, as illustrated by my own rationale for using both chapters and interludes in this book.

The monologues, interviews and other reflective writings resulted in discoveries about Canadian conservatory-style acting programs and teacher training. It should be noted that I have not explored the differences between acting programs outside of Canada and thus am not in this book suggesting that I can make generalizations about all Conservatory style acting programs, this is why I have stipulated that participants attended Canadian Universities. A limitation of this study is that in actuality only four individuals from one acting school participated in this research project and only two of these four participants ended up submitting monologues.
