Taking field notes is the bread and butter of good research. This is a field note technique to reflect on the different masks we wear in our interactions. You’ll write letters to friends, family and colleagues as a way to reflect over the research experience through different voices.

Our experience using this technique

The name ‘One, No One and One Hundred Thousand’ is inspired by a famous italian novel in which a character becomes aware that there are many versions of himself, and has a sort of existential freakout. Gioel is experimenting with it as a PhD field note technique.
