    Researching Theatre and Mental Illness: Transdisciplinary Trouble

Abstract

Working Methodologically across Disciplines Can, at times, Make the Researcher Feel like a Counsellor in a Dysfunctional Marriage. From choosing the right methods and theory, to attempting to interweave – seemingly – contradictory fields; from becoming a terminology interpreter and even all the way down to referencing literature under a single guide, it can become very challenging. What is it that makes this process so demanding? For one thing, it is the obligation to accept and commit; to accept that this is always going to be difficult, that you may stumble upon more cacophonies than usual, and to commit to using diverse disciplines in conversation, rather than against each other, thus honouring their fertile convergence.
