Discussion: 
The general discussion was with regards to the upcoming field trip to Venice. On Saturday, Ryan, Justina and Aivarus fly to Venice for five days, returning on Thursday 23rd February. Therefore, Pria, Poonam and Victor will be responisble for conducting and producing work whilst the others are conducting field research in Venice.

A review was completed of what work had been completed and what work needed to be completed whilst the field trip is happening. Following the review, a list was then compiled, stating who would be responsible for completing what work.

Also, the blog login details were handed to Pria as she will be maintaining the research archive whilst Ryan is in Venice. Ryan stated what work needed to be posted, how it should be formatted, etc. It was also stressed that the blog needs to be updated regularly.

A brief discussion was held over the quality of the work that was being uploaded to the blog. As the blog is a research archive, all work that is posted should be clear, concise and coherent so that other members of the group can read what others have posted and make sense of what is being discussed. Following this, Pria stated that she will filter through the archive and begin compiling a ‘presentation pack’ so that when it comes to conducting the final presentation the notes from the archive are organised.

2) To discuss the relevance of Martyns lecture on liminality, and the carnival.
