Doing liberatory research

8th May 2020 @ 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Join us for a two hour writing and research workshop led by writer, community organiser and award-winning arts educator Farzana Khan (full bio below). The workshop will be run on Zoom on Friday 8th May, 11am-1pm (UK time). 

The workshop is aimed at researchers with an interest in anti-racist and intersectional practice – including work which involves breaking barriers between ‘researchers’ and the ‘researched’ by engaging in co-creation/co-writing with partners such as young people and members of marginalised groups. It will explore how to go about data-collection, write-up, and research dissemination in a way which aims to decolonise practice and challenge varying forms of exclusion and inequality.

The workshop is open to postgraduate students from KCL, Queen Mary and Imperial but numbers are limited due to the online format of the event. Please email me on freya.aquarone@kcl.ac.uk as soon as possible to reserve a place and receive the Zoom link.
