Methodological seminar - Elodie Apard, Precious Diagboya, Janet Ogundairo
Between the 29th and the 30th of November, Dr. Elodie Apard, Historian (Research Institute for Sustainable Development), Dr. Precious Diagboya, Philosopher (IFRA-Nigeria Senior Research Fellow), and Janet Ogundairo, PhD Candidate in Sociology (University of Ibadan) animated a seminar titled: Doing research from where (and who) we are: the use of reflexivity and positionality in Social Sciences and Humanities.
This workshop discussed the importance of the position and perspective of the researcher in designing, conducting, and writing up research based on the collection and analysis of qualitative data. The workshop facilitators used practical examples from their own research experience to illustrate the benefits of incorporating considerations of reflexivity and positionality into the different stages of research. The workshop gave insights to master’s and PhD Students that attended in person and online in developing ethically grounded reflexive approaches to research methods.
