In 2023, Christopher commenced studies in anthropology at the Australian National University. His focus is on creative processes among writers in Iceland. In looking at creative processes, Christopher hopes to better understand the ways creative practitioners are involved in the ways people come to understand personal and national identities during times of social change and upheaval.
What are the stories we tell about ourselves and each other, and how do they impact the ways we think, feel, and act?
Christopher will conduct one year of fieldwork in Iceland, working with and alongside creative writers to discuss their processes and practices and to understand what informs and influences them, and how they see their works impacting the conversations that take place around them.
More to come soon.
