Ways of Knowing: Exploring the registers, values and subjectivities of collaborative research

Helen Graham

This project experimentally explores the different ‘ways of knowing’ which emerge from collaborative, participatory or action research. Our research team is made of people who have been involved in collaborative research but who use different techniques and who come from different contexts and/or disciplinary backgrounds. Our way of working will be to try out methods with each other – such as storytelling approaches, craft and making, and a Socratic Dialogue – as a way of collectively reflecting on their effects. Each approach evokes different notions of rationality and reason, different relationships between ‘thinking’ and ‘being’ and is orientated differently to supporting lots of different voices or developing consensus.  For more information, see http://waysofknowingresearch.wordpress.com/
