Participatory research : knowledge and recognition
22 November 2023 · 2:00 PM – 24 November 2023 · 4:00 PM
As part of their joint SAPS label project, the Université de Caen Normandie and Le Dôme have chosen to focus on the development of participatory research programs, in which citizens, students and non-scientific audiences from all walks of life are invited to take part in different phases of scientific research programs with university teams. But what exactly is participatory research, in all its diversity ? What kind of science, or knowledge, do they produce? What are their perhaps specific methods ? How can we encourage the emergence of participatory research that addresses the concerns of a given population or territory, while respecting the specific methods and objectives of researchers ? What impact can this type of research have on public and collective action ?
This first conference on participatory research programs at the University of Caen aims to address these questions by bringing together researchers who study the phenomenon of participation in science, and researchers and actors involved in participatory research programs. For this first edition, the symposium proposes in particular to question the epistemological conceptions that underlie participatory research schemes.
