The aim of my artistic research is to identify how technology has changed feminism over the last one hundred years, in particular the impact it has had on women’s relationships to one another and the formsin which knowledge is shared. The spine of this enquiry - in which I situate my practice-based research - is Virginia Woolf’s ‘A Room of One’s Own’, a book published nearly one hundred years ago in 1929.
The aim of my research is to ‘unlock’ voices, bringing out implicit pluralities implicit in the ritual public reading of Christian Scripture, while disrupting the single authoritative voice that conventionally builds its main tone. The project will contribute towards a religious and a sound practice, by bringing together theory and practice in a reciprocal exploration.
My study hopes to determine the value of the approach as a catalyst in drawing out these intangible, yet integrated components of the history curriculum. It will also explore the use of drama in delivering ‘contested’ histories, developing recommendations of the HA (Historical Association), which can encourage students’ to appreciate the many challenging and conflicting interpretations of the past.
