Starting a Conversation with Madeline Donald: Corrugating Attentiveness: A Presearch Methodology

February 17, 2022 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us for the next speaker in our Starting a Conversation series with Madeline Donald!

The education of attention and perception takes time and repetition. Corrugation is a dance between attention, memory, and the passage of time: experience folds into ideas folding into experience.

Donald will speak to her experience of corrugating relations in some of the riparian habitats of the Okanagan and Similkameen watershed, where for one year, she
intentionally cultivated an attentional practice. It is her belief that in order to conduct research in a given habitat/community/context, a researcher has the obligation to come into relation with, and in the bounds of, that research space. This presentation is a representation of how Donald acheived that.

Everyone is welcome.


About the Speaker

Madeline Donald was born on Coast Miwok territory and raised a traveler. She is a daughter, partner, friend, co-thinker/dreamer, and 3rd year PhD student presently living as an uninvited visitor in and with the Okanagan watershed in unceeded Syilx homelands.

Her current research is grounded in relational research methodologies and saturated by the riparian habitats of the Okanagan watershed. Living with narcolepsy, Madeline actively questions and counters temporally inaccessible expectations for academic labour.
