the research task
The Research Task:

A ‘research activity’ might involve:

    • Visiting a specific site, museum or gallery that is not already part of the itinerary and writing a short reflective piece on the experience
    • Writing a creative piece (poem, short story, experimental writing) that explores the experience of being in Paris, or an aspect of Parisian culture
    • Taking a series of photographs that offer a form of comment on contemporary and/or literary Paris
    • Writing a travel blog or news article about the trip
    • Becoming a ‘flaneur’ for the day and writing a reflective piece on the experience of being in another city
    • Producing a piece of artwork (or a piece of music) about the city
    • Close-reading any part of the set reading and reflecting on the experience of having visited the site.
  • This work is not assessed but is included as a requirement of the trip.
