“In the Fires of Exchange” will be offered as a theoretical seminar that integrates focus on currents of effective research methodology for use in BP, while also addressing problems of appropriation and mitigating factors for such problems.

The seminar will center on participant observation fieldwork done in 2017 entitled “Cooking in the Fires: An Alchemical Hermeneutic Study of Cross-Cultural Exchange.” This exploration serves as an illustration/example of applying the process methodology of alchemical hermeneutics, as described by author Robert Romanyshyn (2013). This practice, along with the burgeoning field of heuristic research practice (Moustakas, 2010), is presented as a rigorous and ethic methodological option for doing research in BP.
