The Dennis Potter Heritage Project provides a unique opportunity for complex empirical research. It offers the researcher a chance to study the organisational and cultural processes involved in the evolution of a heritage project, created to celebrate a locally important and culturally significant media icon. It promotes the exploration of memory within the locally specific heritage environment of the Forest of Dean and the Dean Heritage Centre’s exhibition space, and it offers the opportunity to study emergent ideas of affect and emotion (Clough 2007; Thrift 2008). Research on the DPHP therefore necessitates a new, complex and innovative approach to methods and methodology. This paper explores autoethnography as both a process a methodology) which can be combined with other qualitative methods, and as a final product (as a mode of writing adopted in the finished research).
