The workshop will discuss the participatory and reflexive research methods the presenters used in their doctoral research, as well as the connections that have arisen between them, as part of an evolving methodology for community based research. Participants in the workshop will be involved in an exercise featuring the use of the circuit model of Anthony Gidden’s structuration theory as a tool for identifying and shedding insight on the dynamics of community engagement and participation in such research environments.
