CREATE heard from Dr Erica Lewis (Faculty of Arts and Sciences) about her experiences of using participatory methods during her doctoral studies. Erica’s presentation was interesting and challenging. She sparked interesting discussions about the use of participatory methods, gender issues and power within organisations.

Mike Stoddart (Faculty of Education) and Dr Paul Simpson (Faculty of Health and Social Care) presented their research focusing on making research genuinely participative to CREATE. Mike’s presentation, based on his work with the university Action For Refugee’s work, presented ways in which narratives from both refugees, and from researchers, combine in creating new and shared understandings which help people live and work together. Paul has been using photovoice methodologies, working with men to investigate ‘what matters’ and exploring reflection and reflexivity.
