Research interests: Tom Jackson

Tom’s primary area of research is sensory ethnography. Bringing together interests in cross-modal perception, anthropology, cultural geography and digital media, he proposes new sensory research methods. Through the design and development of digital tools, such as multisensory, spatial and participatory virtual archives and immersive and embodied audiovisual recordings, his work aims to explore the relationships between sensory experience and cultural phenomena. Tom’s commercial experience in graphic design, photography and interactive programming have informed his largely practice-led approach to research.

• Sensory ethnography
• Cross-modal perception
• Anthropology
• Cultural geography
• Environmental psychology
• Digital media
• The virtual archive

Report

Simon's research interests relate to community history, storytelling and the role of community voices in representing themselves. He is particularly interested in the ways in which communities can work equally with large organisations and institutions and share archival and community assets. He has been working to develop digital assets that can allow people to communicate and publish their stories and this platform is a result of one of these projects.

He has worked on several projects that include:

Opening the Archives: The BBC and the Miners' Strike / Strike Stories:

Report

Cross-modal perception and multisensory ethnography

"There can be no doubt that our senses are designed to work in concert ... even those experiences that at first may appear to be modality-specific are most likely to have been influenced by activity in other sensory modalities, despite our lack of awareness of such interactions."
(Calvert et al., 2004, p.xi)

https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/handbook-multisensory-processes

"the senses are often assumed to be an intrinsic property of the body – a natural and unmediated aspect of human being … I argue that the senses are far from innocent; they are a situated practice that can shed light on the way bodies experience different spaces of culture."
(Law, 2001, p.266)
