Crafting Collaborative Research Methodologies demonstrates a number of collaborative, visual and narrative methods that explore the promises and the ethical, relational complexities inherent in collaborative research.
It engages with both the potentials and complexities of doing collaborative analysis and offers a medley of methods for analysis. These methods revolve around co-produced texts from Peru, Denmark and Bolivia, and involve images, memory work and practical approaches to intersectionality thinking. Through detailed explorations of the complex interweaving of issues of meaning-making, difference and the co-production of knowledge, dynamics of social exclusion and segregation become visible in the nexus between evocation and interpretation/analysis. Christina Hee Pedersen takes up the poststructuralist challenge of including researcher subjectivity as part of the analysis and, through a lively writing style, the reader is invited to engage in this analysis of the performativity of selves.
This book can inspire analytical thinking for researchers and advanced students interested in expanding the rich dialogues among feminists doing post structural and interdisciplinary inquiry, and for all students of qualitative and collaborative methodologies.
