Having harnessed primary data from ethnographic studies that are in progress the students began analytical work on their semi-structured interviews at the camp. This was done by means of peer reviews, individual sit-downs with their supervisor, oral presentations and mind mapping exercises on day one. The evening on day one was spent in a group discussion with the KFI Study Centre faculty. The energetic group discussion pertained to the question of “Judgment and Evaluation”. It was a discussion that the students were able to relate to both as researchers and as young women in higher education. Day two was spent in guided chapterization, which involved the finalizing of topic statements, literature reviews that were relevant to each chapter and segregating data collected in terms of its pertinence to each chapter. The camp was a hands-on application level experience that put to the test the course on Critical Enquiry and Research Methods taught in the 3rd semester of MA English Studies. The young scholars returned with renewed energy and motivation to bring their minds and skills to research and writing that would impact the world positively.
