Researching with disadvantaged communities and other easily ignored groups
Wolfson Workshop in collaboration with the Centre for Social Justice and Community Action.
This workshop will be run by:
- Dr Andrew Russell, Senior Lecturer, Anthropology
- Dr Sue Lewis, Qualitative Research Specialist with the Research Design Service, School of Medicine & Health.
- Dr Jon Warren, Senior Research Associate in Public Health Policy
- Kayleigh Garthwaite, Research Postgraduate, Geography
- Greg Brown, Thrive based in Thornaby
With an introduction from Dr Adetayo Kasim, WRI Research Statistician.
The workshop will provide an overview of recent projects conducted by, and in collaboration with, researchers at Durham University. Attendees will discuss critical issues surrounding researching with disadvantaged communities and other easily ignored groups including: why researching with these communities is so important; the ethical issues of conducting this type of research; which research methods may be most appropriately employed; and the impact that research outcomes may have on the community and on policy makers. The workshop will be interactive, allowing plenty of time for discussion and for sharing any experiences of researching with these communities.
The workshop is aimed at both the postgraduates and academics of all levels within the University. We would encourage attendance by both those who have previously conducted research with disadvantaged communities and other easily ignored groups and those who would be interested in conducting research projects with these communities.
