Researching Conflict in the Humanities

Researching Conflict in the Humanities: Challenges, Practices and Methods

Various dates (March - July)

This interdisciplinary student-led training is designed for PhD students and Early Career Researchers in the Arts and Humanities studying conflicts from the First World War to the present, regardless of geographical location. It seeks to question the positionality of the researcher, and explore the most current methodological approaches in the study of conflict in different disciplines. In a series of five successive events, we will aim to explore specifically the question of the political bias of the researcher, the most adequate methodologies to study conflict, and the use of potential instrumentalisation of research for activism. Participants will be allowed to engage, propose approaches relevant to their disciplines, and test ideas in an open and less formal setting.

Politics and Reflexivity When Studying Conflict (1/5) - *FULLY BOOKED*

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.

Participants will be e-mailed texts for the discussion two weeks prior to the session.

Program schedule:

9:30 - Arrive, tea and coffee

10:00 - Talk by Dr Audrey Alejandro followed by a Q&A

11:00 - Break and networking session

11:30 - Discussion of texts

13:15 - Closing remarks

Key speaker: Dr Audrey Alejandro, Assistant Professor in the department of Methodology at the LSE.

Dr Alejandro is an International Political Sociology Scholar working at the crossroads of International Relations, Sociology and Political Science. She is specialised in the study of knowledge and discourse and their interaction with the social and political order.

If you are allocated a place but can no longer attend, please email so that your place can be reallocated. CHASE training is free to attend and events are often oversubscribed with a waiting list. Failure to notify us of non-attendance in good time (ideally 5 days prior to the workshop/programme) means your place cannot be reallocated and may result in your access to future CHASE training being restricted.
