    Other events which may be of interest and coming up are:

    Researching cultural work and creative biographies:

    This half-day workshop will begin with presentations from three researchers
    who make different use of biographical materials: Linda Sandino (Camberwell
    College of Arts/ V&A), Maria Tamboukou (UEL) and Stephanie Taylor (Open
    University). They will describe their empirical work in this broad area,
    focussing on the data collection and analytic approach, the premises and
    broad purpose of the research and empirical issues which it raises.
