In between revising my presentation for IGC112015 in Beijing I have been delving into geographies of temporality - this is an area I am insanely interested in yet am still exploring and finding my way through. I keep thinking about these questions:
- What do you think of when riding?
- What do you do with your time when riding?
- How does time pass when you are riding?
Meanwhile, the methodology presentation is shaping up nicely and I have stopped tripping up on the phrase 'talking and writing about cycling practices with cycling practitioners.'
If you're currently cycling in Sydney, are 18 years and over, and interested in participating in more in-depth cycling research, head to http://tinyurl.com/cyclingpractice to register your interest through a short 2 minute questionnaire.
Counting down the days before IGC 11 (International Graduate Conference), held at Tsinghua University, Beijing on July 6 & 7, 2015.
The IGC is organized each year by five collaborating universities - Chulalongkorn University (Thailand), Communication University of China - CUC (China), Macquarie University (Australia), Tsinghua University (China) and University of Paris III Sorbonne (France).
This year the conference theme is Research Methods, which fits in perfectly with PhD progress. I am looking forward to jumping on a plane and discussing research methods with post graduate students from around the world in three weeks time and jumping on a bike to explore Beijing!
