I am inviting you to take in part in my research project, “Bodies and buildings: How the chronically ill or disabled experience buildings in academia”. I work with creative research methods to get as close as possible to participants’ experiences and feelings and I believe in the participatory nature of research and the need for participants to make sense of their experiences.
The information sheet and consent forms can be downloaded from here.
If you have any further questions or you are interested in being part of this research, please, get in touch via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you choose to participate in this research you will be asked to provide your story and experiences of ableism in academia through a “virtual” walking interview. The idea for the walking interview arose out of already conducted interviews, and so is responsive to previous participants’ issues raised. Participants will therefore be invited to take the researcher through the building “virtually”. Together, we will be talking through how we would walk through the building you use the most and will be exploring how you engage or interact and “perform” in that building. The interview usually takes about 60 minutes and will be carried out via MS Teams.
