Most of the people that I’ve met describe writing as a solitary experience where you spend a lot of time with yourself and your thoughts. A process where you slowly outline your writing. However, when it comes to research, it already has an collaborative aspect in itself with the referencing of other researchers and written literature. In that way you build upon the shoulders of giants.
The way internet opens up for collaboration it also adds to the possibility to build upon the shoulders of others to reach farther than what was done before and thus effectively contributing to the collective knowledge of human mankind. Therefore I thought I would experiment in having a slightly more collaborative thesis than the usual case is. So rather than sit in my own chamber drafting and re-drafting the text I will open up the process and write about it and hopefully both readers will benefit as well as I will benefit from an influx of new thoughts.
We all have our viewpoint. More often than not I get curious on what other’s people viewpoint is. The outlook I will be having when I write this bachelor’s thesis is the one of a political scientist. However, I think interdisciplinarity is key in getting a richer understanding of the world. What will particularly interest me is the field of communication and what that might be able to contribute to the analysis. So if you are working with that or have studied it you are particularly welcome to chime in, but I have to emphasize that any comment or cheery call is more than welcome.
Thoughts that I’ve had so far.
These are some of the question that I’ve asked myself, obviously I can’t write about everything and some questions are more interesting than others. I would love to hear your thoughts on this, your point of view. What captures your interest? What kind of questions pop into your head when you read this? Conversations create a deeper understanding of the world and it’s when the ball has something to bounce against it will start to understand the limits and the direction it should be heading. So please do chime in :)
The reverbation of today's society through the eyes of a person deeply in love with planet earth. The transformation of today's society is going on in front of our very eyes, I'm striving to be one of the persons to tell the tale of how it was done.
I think at the core of a happier planet and happier persons is community, sharing and telling stories.
