Politics and Reflexivity When Studying Conflict

0930-1330 | Tuesday 19 March 2019

Room MAL G16, Malet Street, Birkbeck

The first session will focus on the impact that political partiality may have on our research. When researching twentieth and twenty-first-century conflicts, are we irremediably governed by partisan and ideological convictions? Are all methodological decisions necessarily political choices as well? How much reflexivity should you include in your thesis? What is adequate, and to what extent do you think this actually impacts your research?

This event will consist of a talk, discussion, reading group, and informal networking.
