Cities, Environment, And Liveability (CEL) – Symposium

Date - Tuesday, 1st May 2018 - Wednesday, 2nd May 2018 (All Day)

Symposium on Moral and Ethical Challenges in Research

Date & Time: Tuesday 1 May, 10.30am – 5pm – Wednesday 2 May 2018, 10.20am – 4pm

Venue: Department of Urban Studies and Planning, Winter St., Sheffield, S10 2TN

The symposium will focus on the breadth of moral and ethical challenges raised by the research process, including activist research, research with vulnerable groups, research that engages with elite and powerful participants, and in co-produced research. Guest speakers will discuss the challenges posed by conducting such research, challenges of publication and dissemination, and the institutional challenges of designing a permissive and developmental ethics review process that allows innovative research. Furthermore, we hope that the symposium will encourage debate about the value and constraints of formal ethics processes, and about how universities as institutions can support the production of ‘high risk’ critical scholarship that raises difficult moral/ethical questions.
