Creative, Collaborative and Participatory Methods for Researching Racism, Migration and Indigeneity
Increasingly, social research is looking to find methods to actively involve research participants in the production of knowledge to calue their subjectivities and situated knowledges and ensure accountability. This is important to make the knowledges produced relevant to particanpts' lives and - where appropriate - speak to, broaden and challenge policy agendas. There can be contradictions between wthe ways in which ideas of participatn and policy impact are articulated in funding bodies' agendas and critical, liberatory, decolonial or anti-racist agendas. At a time where the social climate in many societies is increasingly anti-immigrant and normalizes racism, it is particularly urgent to develop methods and research practices to closely engage research participants and other groups to co-produce critical knowledges, creative and participatory methods offer this promise. This session invites submissions including but not limited to the following questions:
- how can participatory, collaborative and creative methods contribute to critical research on migration, racism and indigeneity?
- challenges for co-producing knowledge across academic and other sectors such as arts, policy, activism?
- methodological issues
- reflexive accounts of specific research projects
- uses of creative and participatory methods for generating data, engagement and dissemination
- opportunities and pitfalls for challenging colonial and racialized knowledges
