Description

Methodology on Fridays

A series of discussions for staff and HDR students interested in the practice and problems of educational research

This series aspires to be a forum for discussion and argument about research. We will focus on methodology conceived in the broad sense of the structure and process of inquiry: from questions and theory through to ethics and the techniques of data collection and analysis.

Each session will begin with a unique ‘provocation.’ The provocation is intended to set the tone of the session by identifying and articulating a research issue which the members of the group can debate. For some sessions the provocation will aim at a synthesis of issues raised in previous sessions, and may involve a reading to further the discussion.

Post Qualitative Inquiry: Methodological Murmurs, the Too Strange and the Too Much - Dr Leanne Coll and Dr Emma Charlton

Dr Leanne Coll and Dr Emma Charlton consider what counts as research. Using the below paper as a launch pad, and their recent publication in Sex Education, they will think through the (im)possibilities of post qualitative inquiry.

Please read the short and conversational article: ‘Writing paralysis in (post) qualitative research’ by Sarah Bridges-Rhoads.

Abstract: In this article, the author takes up the page as a site of experimentation with/against/through paralysis. Struck by the (im) possibility of untangling and taming a deconstructing inquiry to “write it up” as recognizable research, she writes, instead, to pursue previously unthought and unseen openings for thinking and doing qualitative work. The effect is an article that negotiates the tensions of doing qualitative research in the post(s) and questions the possibility and value of resolving such tensions.

Dr. Leanne Coll accepted a Lecturing position with the School of Education in March 2015. Prior to commencing this role, Leanne held a part-time lecturing position at Dublin City University and a part-time appointment at the University of Limerick. Leanne graduated with First Class Honours from the BSc in Physical Education (with Mathematics) at the University of Limerick in 2010. She was subsequently awarded the Irish Research Council for Humanities and Social Science's (IRCHSS) Post-Graduate Scholarship. Leanne's PhD (in the area of Young People's Voices in Sexuality Education) was supervised by Professor Mary O'Sullivan (University of Limerick and Dr Eimear Enright (University of Queensland) and was completed in 2015. Using Youth Participatory Action Research (YPAR) as a methodological frame, the purpose of her PhD was to understand and transform how sexuality education was designed and delivered in Irish post-primary schools.
