Date & time
Please join us for a webinar, hosted by the Resources, Environment and Development group (RE&D), at the Crawford School of Public Policy.
RE&D scholars Dr Sarah Milne and Prof Kuntala Lahiri-Dutt will co-convene a panel discussion about fieldwork and “remote research” in times of COVID-19. Many of us have faced unique challenges this year, especially with restrictions on travel to field sites in Australia and the region.
This panel discussion brings together researchers who have found new ways to gather data and collaborate with field-based researchers, under difficult circumstances. We reflect upon the implications for higher degree research students; for the planning and design of research in 2021; and for research relationships, which in some cases have been positively transformed. Brief talks by researchers from the Crawford School will be followed by Q&A time.
Dr Sarah Milne – on the experiences of Masters-level research students
Professor Kuntala Lahiri-Dutt – on remote research and potential for decolonial dynamics
Dr Kat Taylor – developing collaborations with Indigenous communities in the Kimberley
Associate Professor John McCarthy – researching COVID-related impacts on food security in Indonesia
Dr Kirsty Jones – new research approaches under COVID restrictions in Australia
