Enacting Methods: working with creative research methods

Enacting Methods: working with creative research methods

 3 December, 10:30 – 16:30, The Open University, Milton Keynes, Michael Young 1&2

What is the relationship between acts, performance and social science methods? This CCIG forum (co-developed and hosted by CCIG Families, Relationships and Communities and Enactments Research Programmes) will explore this question. It will provide a valuable practical opportunity for researchers interested in both using creative research to engage participants and also in developing methods which can dynamically work with people’s own, often political, actions. All Welcome!
