This week’s readings and discussions have been really helpful in moving forward my research project thinking. It has allowed me to view the project from a number of disciplinary perspectives and provided me with ideas for a number of documentary standpoints. Readers of this blog might realise I enjoy doing mind maps to develop my thinking and the one below outlines some of the disciplines that might intersect in relation to the Road to Elgol.

At the moment my preferences include “History”, as I have a degree in Economic and Social History, “Geography”, because it would be difficult not to, given the many features of this area and “Environment” – as one of the topical issues on the Isle of Skye at the moment is the cost and impact of tourism to the Island and its people. I also feel I should focus on “Biology” in terms of the wildlife that frequent the road and its environs.

Over the next week I will be starting to draft my Research Project proposal to provide a starting point for amendment and review over the coming weeks and months. I will be travelling to Skye at the beginning of March and will do further research and image making on The Road to Elgol.
