Intimate Accounts of Education Policy Research: The Practice of Methods

In a seminar hosted by ACU’s Institute for Learning Sciences and Teacher Education, distinguished scholars in education policy and governance research present and discuss their practice of methods from an edited collection by Camilla Addey and Nelli Piattoeva (2021) – Intimate Accounts of Education Policy Research: The Practice of Methods (Routledge).

The presenters approach methodology as riddled with tensions, doubts, troubles and mundane decisions, and put these issues to productive use as resources for thinking about the researched world and about research itself. They examine questions such as how research reproduces scholars’ metaphysics, how research is a deeply embodied process encompassing all senses, and how scholars’ concerns interfere in the worlds they study, but also how these equally interfere with researchers themselves. By challenging smooth methodological accounts that conceal the complex and provisional nature of research, this seminar offers exciting new ways of thinking about research methodologies in education policy and governance research.

We welcome students and researchers across all levels of their academic career in the fields of education research and education theory, as well as social scientists interested in research methodologies more broadly. The event is scheduled for 16 November 2021 4pm-5:30pm, AEST (QLD, Australia).
