Participatory possibilities: reflections from research with families on a low-income during the pandemic

Over the past two years, and since the very early days of the pandemic, Ruth has worked in partnership with parents and carers living on a low-income, with colleagues at the University of York and Birmingham, and with Child Poverty Action Group to document experiences of poverty during Covid-19. The Covid Realities research programme has created imaginative forms of online participatory research, creating spaces for parents to both detail their everyday realities, and develop recommendations for what needs to change and why. In this talk, Ruth will reflect on the methodological approach taken in this participatory work, pulling out 'ethical speedbumps' encountered along the way as well as the possibilities it has generated.


This is a hybrid event, taking place in the Violet Butler Room, Department of Social Policy and Intervention and on Microsoft Teams.

DSPI Members will be sent a joining link prior to the event.
