Methodologies (in) Conversations: Session 2 – Positionality & Reflexivity

November 18, 2020 All day

This session aims to provide reflections for scholars using both empirical and non-empirical methods about the role and impact of the researcher on and within their research. It may addresses questions such as the power relations existing between researcher and researched, the position of researchers in relation to the social world in which they work and live, the connections between activism and research, or and how to articulate socially empowering ways to do research.
