Conviviality concerns how we think about human modes of togetherness. In research, conviviality concerns the possibilities of new kind of participatory research. The book "Studying Diversity, Migration an Urban Multicultural: Convivial Tools for Research and Practice" presents ways of understanding and implementing convivial tools within an epistemological, cultural and social context, with contributions by Magdalena Nowicka, Claire Dwyer, Nazneen Ahmed, Katy Beinart, Sarah Crafter, Humera Iqbal, Maggie O’Neill, Bea Giaquinto, Fahira Hasedzic, Ben Gidley, Agata Lisiak, Alicja Kaczmarek, Adele Galipo, Don Flynn, Karin Woodley, Charlotte Gilsenan, Les Back, and Ann Phoenix.
The book launch will start with an introduction by the editors, Prof. Dr. Magdalena Nowicka and Dr. Mette Louise Berg. After that, Prof. Ann Phoenix will take part in a discussion on her chapter, “Convivial Practices in Communities of Research”. The chapter highlights how power relations are embedded in social research. In the chapter, Professor Phoenix draws on examples from several pieces of research to deepen our understanding of migration research and the study of diversity and social positioning. In her talk, she will reflect on the issues this raises for thinking about convivial research and practice.
The discussion will be followed by a reception.
The event is open to the public, free of charge. However, due to limited seating, those who are interested in joining must register online by 18 June 2019.
