Dear All


2nd CFP Abstracts are due this week on the 28th of February


Tackling ethical and methodological challenges and possibilities in geographical research

There is rarely a ‘box on the form’ for the ethical challenges which arise in geographical research. These challenges tend to be ‘dynamic, ongoing and complex’ (Gillan and Pickerill, 2012) rather than predictable. They concern the responsibilities of a researcher to her participants, but extend far beyond matters of informed consent. We invite presentations that draw on researchers’ fieldwork experiences, as well as those with a theoretical focus. Topics we are interested in include but are not limited to:



·       Decolonising methods

·       Over-researched people and places

·       Scholar-activism and the challenges of joining the struggle

·       Responsibilities beyond informed consent

·       Power differentials between researcher/researched, and amongst the researched

·       Writing unflattering accounts

·       Participant benefits

·       The neoliberal university and research ethics

·       Digital research methods and social media as data



Abstracts are due 28th February via the following link (you will create an account and then go on to submit your abstract, choosing 'Tackling ethical and methodological challenges and possibilities in geographical research' in the drop down box): https://cdesign.eventsair.com/2019-iag/abstracts

 Please contact Laura Wynne (laura.wynne at utas.edu.au) or Pratichi Chatterjee (pratichi.chatterjee at sydney.edu.au) with any questions about this session.

Kind regards

Pratichi
