Dear She Said Noters,
In grad school I would see email postings from professors asking for students to transcribe their research. I didn’t think much of it then, but now, doing my own interview transcribing for issues of She Said Notes, I wonder if they ever worried they might miss something in that research duty being once removed.
My conversation with visual artist Charmaine Lurch was a fantastic first part in what ended up being an ongoing process of learning. The time I spent transcribing obliged me to slow down and really pay attention to someone else’s carefully considered words. Charmaine’s work is, in many ways, about bringing stories forward to be seen for the first time or in a new way. Read on, enjoy and maybe even jot down a few notes!
