Goldsmiths Press / Methods Lab

The Methods Lab series is committed to pioneering critical and creative research practices in and beyond academia. It aims to be a multi-dimensional publishing platform to foster experimental open-ended approaches to studying and intervening in the social world. Through re-purposing and borrowing from inside and outside the academy, it stretches the walls of disciplinary scholarship.This series’s distinctive edge lies in its approach to research, practice and publishing. It is grounded in the idea that it is imperative for contemporary researchers to not only undertake high-quality work but also to challenge a reliance on standardised, text-based dissemination. Valuing the dynamic relations between methods and publishing opens up the opportunity to experiment with ways of doing reliable and robust research, and connecting inventively with a diverse becoming of publics.
