Course Description


During the workshop we will explore different theoretical and disciplinary traditions informing data reanimation and consider the ethical challenges and possibilities of reanimating qualitative data sets. 

We discuss what data reanimation is and consider the benefits and affordances of using this method of enquiry. In particular we will consider how this approach (1) enables creativity, reflexivity, experimentation and innovation in research, (2) creates opportunities to engage non-specialist audiences and communities in collaborative secondary analysis, data collection and/or public engagement and (3) engages critically with ideas around social change and continuity. 

This is an active workshop that will invite participants to experiment with reanimating qualitative data using different methods. Participants will be encouraged to bring their own research materials with them where possible or work with archived data provided by the workshop facilitators. We will consider how to reanimate data ethically and with care and share examples of how this has been done in recent research and community projects.  

This is an online workshop that will be held on zoom. You will need to have a microphone on your device to enable you to participate in the workshop. During the workshop you will also need to be able to access padlet.
