Workshop 4: Analysing and interpreting participatory data.
Delivered by: Dr Louise Warwick-Booth & Susan Coan.
When: Wednesday, 29th June, 10.00 – 12.00 via WebEx (online).
This session will explore the principles and values underpinning participatory approaches to analysis. We will identify several ‘types’ of participatory analysis for consideration. We will outline how collaboration can work within analysis approaches, and discuss issues with this aspect of the research process. We will use breakout rooms to generate debate and conversation about the challenges of researching gendered violence in the global south, reflecting what this means for analysis and interpretation.
