Petre & Rugg (2010). Presentations. (The Unwritten Rules Of PhD Research.)

“… don’t sacrifice the evidence, otherwise your take-away message won’t be convincing. Don’t short-change the context, otherwise the research choices may not make sense. Don’t forget to motivate the question, otherwise the audience might wonder why you’re bothering.” (p 173)

“Daniel Wildcat considers how place informs: ‘You see and hear things by being in a forest, on a river, or at an ocean coastline; you gain real experiential knowledge that you cannot see by looking at the beings that live in those environments under a microscope or in a laboratory experiment’ (in Deloria and Wildcat, 2001: 36).” (p 61)
