Allyship As A Researcher

Course Description:
The Allyship As… programme is designed to consider the different roles we occupy as PhD candidates and researchers and develop the skills and confidence to promote social change and disrupt systems of oppression. It looks at the theoretical and practical aspects of anti-oppressive practice in a high support, high challenge environment. This is hosted by Lou Chiu (she/her), a Culture and Relationships Coach and Consultant who specialises in allyship, safer spaces in helping professions, and Existential Coaching.

Allyship As A Researcher:
In this session, we will look at how each of us is impacted by epistemic injustice, especially how we don’t know what we don’t know. By using anti-oppressive, difference-centred paradigms, students can reflect on how people make sense of the world and how it might contradict other interpretations of experience. The session will also consider the practical impacts of conducting primary research with marginalised communities.
