We are excited to announce that we have been working on a Co-production toolkit designed with helping Researchers and Early Career Researchers in mind.
We include best practice in conducting research in different ways an across a variety of disciplines – with a wealth of case studies to demonstrate how these methods have been used by our colleagues. The toolkit will be launched later this year – but here is an example of one of the films.
Dr Jim House talks about his research ‘Shanty Towns and the City: Colonial Power Relations in Algiers and Casablanca 1919 to 1960’. During this project Jim worked with communities and local community activists, historians, and journalists in areas that have been stigmatized, and also with people who grew up in the shanty towns in the 1940s and 1950s to explore their memories of the struggle for independence.
People feel more pride in their area through a better understanding of the participation of their families in the struggle for independences.
Our ‘Toolkit’ highlights best practice in participatory research at the University of Leeds, and identifies key priorities for innovative interdisciplinary methods development.
The Toolkit was funded by UKRI Research England.
