Intimate Entanglements: Sociological Review workshop

This event is on 19 February 2018 9:30am

This workshop opens-up the value of intimacy as a quality of socio-material relations in knowledge-making and communities of practice. Ethnographers and ethno-methodologists have long held the need for first-hand experience of social worlds and immersion within them if their rationales and their social significance are to be understood. Yet the intimate nature and character of these knowledge practices have seldom been fully explored.

The ICC’s Head of Research Kerry Wilson is participating in the workshop, linked to her AHRC-funded research on professional ethics in collaborative cultural work, which applies a communities of practice framework to the analysis of the social construction of embodied professional knowledge, skills and values within museum and library sectors.

Themes to be explored by various cross-disciplinary speakers include how ‘intimate entanglements’ are core to heterogeneous identities and forms of belonging; the politics of intimacy; and how the beings we encounter in our research come to matter to us, and how our questions and concerns become relevant for them.
