To better pursue participant-centered research in disability studies, a range of creative research methods has been developed. These new methods allow participants to contribute through other means than verbal conversation and address themes that matter to participants in their everyday lives. The two-day symposium organized by CitPro aims to provide a platform for a constructive discussion of some of these new methods, combining academic presentations with hands-on practical workshops on walking interviews, photography, poetry, or sensory methods.
The symposium opens with a discussion of the state of the art of inclusive research methods in disability studies both in Norway and internationally. The discussion will be followed by a presentation of relevant doctoral, postdoctoral, and other projects that employ or develop experimental inclusive methods. The focus will be on the benefits and possible research ethical challenges of doing such inclusive research.
More information will be announced closer to the date.
