This paper reports on the range of ethnographic research methods that are currently being applied in the author's investigation of a number of artists who teach in tertiary institutions. The study examines the relation between the artistic practice and the teaching practice of the artist/academic respondents to the study. In particular this paper cites a form of semantic analysis that seeks triangulated endorsement for its claims through the use of a combination of unstructured and structured interviews, unobtrusive observation and documentary evidence.
