Samuel Stockley

Samuel Stockley

Creative Industries PhD researcher

With a background in Media, Design, and Entrepreneurship, I'm currently exploring the concept of 'city buzz' and its role in sustaining and growing the urban Creative and Cultural Industries in Leeds. I'm interested in the interrelationships between creative and cultural sector workers and the spaces and places of the city, with a particular focus on the intangible, experiential, and sensate urban experience. Utilising walking as sensory ethnographic technique coupled with embodied technology, I'm attempting to capture the experience of city buzz through audio-mapping.

Jaroslava Tomanova

Jaroslava Tomanova

PhD candidate

I am a Czech citizen educated in Prague, Leeds and London. My research interests developed from my working experience in culture and performing arts as well as reading literature across academic disciplines generally labelled as social science. My PhD is an explanatory study of cultural policy in the Czech Republic, a specific case which can show processes regarding policy mobility and transfer happening in public policies elsewhere. In my research, I am taking interpretative approach focusing at subjective experiences of individuals. I use qualitative research methods, maintain high level of reflexivity and detail and base my ontological and epistemological assumptions in social constructionism. Outside my PhD project, I am interested in critical debates on participatory audience engagement in the arts, critical theory, feminist theory and post-modern sociology. Also, I am growing my interest in reflexive research methodologies, debates on qualitative research methods and qualitative data analysis.
