Creativity and methodological innovation in the sociology of familial and intimate relationships
29th November, 2019, 9am – 4.45pm
This one day meeting will bring together researchers at all stages of their career who are seeking to forge responsive and creative methods for investigating familial and intimate relationships. It is designed to facilitate attendees working together to share, interrogate and extend the methodological and methods approaches in their current work. We welcome explorations of multiple methods, innovative and traditional, with the aim of providing an opportunity to explore the possibilities and challenges of methodological creativity.
We will also host a hands-on collaborative workshop exploring creative approaches to methods, analysis and engagement—research that is embodied, situated, personal and political, that opens up diversity, accessibility and the co-existence of voices and ideas. This workshop will culminate in the collaborative productions of a zine, illustrating and building on the discussions of the day, and speaking to the future of creativity in research in the field.
