The poem Participatory research: Full ethical approval is a collection of four haikus following the 5-7-5 syllable format. I wrote the poem as part of my research into lived experiences of ableism in academia and ethical considerations of participatory work, as many policies in institutional ethics committees and review boards do not take into account the role and responsibilities of researchers in relation to their participants.

The poem was first published in July 2021 in the Journal of Participatory Research Methods, as part of a book review.

 

Participatory research: Full ethical approval

Joint. Co-constructed.
I’ll let you participate
in my research work:

 

Take photos! Draw! Paint!
Capture your experience!
I’ll make sense for you.

 

Marginalised voice
amplified through my research.
Silenced; no longer.

 

My research data.
Your story. What’s yours is mine
to use and to keep.
