‘Getting Ethics’: ethics as practice and praxis

Friday 4th May 2018

Bangor University, North Wales

Cost: £5 for BSA members, £15 for non-BSA members

 

A one-day event for early career researchers (ECRs).

For this event, ECR includes postgraduate research students, post-docs and others who consider themselves to be ECRs.

 

Our keynote speaker will be Dr David Calvey of Manchester Metropolitan University, whose recent publications include: Covert Research: The Art, Politics and Ethics of Undercover Fieldwork (2017), London: Sage; ‘Covert: The Fear and Fascination of a Methodological Pariah’ (chapter 31) in The Sage Handbook of Qualitative Research Ethics, edited by Ron Iphofen & Martin Tolich (2018), London: Sage.

 

This event will explore the meanings of ‘getting ethical approval’ and what it means to be undertaking research ethically. Our particular focus will be ethnographic research, however the issues are transferrable to other modes of inquiry. We consider ethics as encompassing a number of ‘phases’ inter alia the pre-research question, through the conduct of research in real time, to final dissemination and consumption of research.

 

Ethics is an increasingly central and complex field both practically and philosophically. What one researcher or institution might take as ethical, another might regard as problematic. We rarely verify the acceptability of consent packs or explore what ‘ethical’ means with those potentially about to ‘be researched’. It is therefore an interesting position to ponder: what if what is acceptable to the institution granting the right to research clashes with what is acceptable to those potentially about to ‘be researched’? How should a compromise be reached and where does this leave the researcher in terms of obtaining final ethical approval from the institution for conducting the research?

 

Our aim here is to enable ECRs to think through the issues around ethics in a worldly context (i.e. as practice and praxis). The workshop might be thought of as working through ‘pre ethics’, ‘situated ethics in the field’, and ‘the ethical afterlife’ of work when it is in the public domain. It is this ‘end to end ethics’ orientation that that will make this event particularly useful for ECRs.

 

Geographically, holding the event at Bangor University lends itself to addressing ethical issues with regards to cultural and linguistic minority communities. There will be an opportunity here to generate debate regarding identity, community, and civil rights, with a particular focus on Wales and Welsh identity as a case study. This offers an opportunity for fruitful, if potentially emotive, discussions, and the organisers will ensure respectful interactions on these topics, handled with sensitivity and parity.

 

There will be opportunities to:

  • learn by listening to speakers
  • share experiences and provide peer support
  • discuss topics in the workshops that affect you as an Early Career Researcher
  • network with a view to potential future collaborations

About the afternoon speakers:

Dr Alexandra Plows, Bangor University. Her research expertise includes researching local and public knowledge, empirical studies of regional labour markets, and ethnographies for messy social realities.

Dr Alexis Paton, University of Leicester, has several years’ experience of “getting ethics” through her work with the NHS. Her research focuses on decision-making in the clinical context, using a socio-bioethics approach that uses empirical work to examine decision-making theory, policy, and practice.

Dr Sara Louise Wheeler, Y Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol, Bangor University. A methodological pluralist and bricoleuse, with particular expertise in auto/ ethnography and reflexivity, she has research and teaching interests in identities, cultural belonging and lived experiences of languages, health, and, currently, the early career trajectory.

 

About the workshops

The application form for this event includes space for you to say what you would like to discuss with other ECRs. You may be looking for answers or insights to address a challenge that you are facing or have faced. You may want to be part of a general discussion about an aspect of ethics. We will share the topics with all attendees in advance of the event, provided you submit them by 4pm on the 3rd of April 2018. You are encouraged to consider ‘pitching’ to host a workshop during the 10.15am slot. The workshops are primarily for discussion, not for dissemination. You will be given 30 seconds to outline what you would like the workshop to discuss and what you hope to get out of the workshop. If there are more pitches than can be accommodated in the two workshop sessions, similar pitches may be combined or attendees asked for a show of hands for which workshops they are most interested in joining. During the lunch break, areas of the room will be allocated for informal discussion and networking for any topics that do not result in a workshop. You do not need to have the answers, but you do need to be comfortable chairing a discussion and making sure that the group make a record of the discussion on flipchart paper. The flipcharts will be reviewed by the Panel during the afternoon speaker slot. The Panel will then speak briefly about what they see as key themes or points of interest.

 

Workshops as data-generating activities

Within a workshop, attendees are free to: agree to share ownership of the records made on the flipchart; photograph the flipcharts and use them within their own research, provided any information generated within the workshop is cited by name of workshop and details of the event; collaborate after the event (e.g. write a paper based on the workshop or consider a collaborative grant application based on the workshop theme). After the event, the organisers intend to co-author a paper about the workshops. We will acknowledge all attendees as contributors to the paper.

‘Deall Moeseg’:

gweithdy moeseg fel ymarfer ac arfer

Dydd Gwener, 4 Mai 2018

Prifysgol Bangor, Gogledd Cymru

Cost: £5 i aelodau BSA, £15 i rai sydd ddim yn aelodau BSA

 

Digwyddiad undydd i ymchwilwyr ar ddechrau eu gyrfa.

Ar gyfer y digwyddiad hwn, mae ymchwilwyr ar ddechrau eu gyrfa yn cynnwys myfyrwyr ymchwil ôl-radd, ôl-ddoethuriaid ac eraill sy’n ystyried eu hunain i fod yn ymchwilwyr ar ddechrau eu gyrfa.

 

Ein prif siaradwr fydd Dr David Calvey o Manchester Metropolitan University, mae ei gyhoeddiadau diweddar yn cynnwys: Covert Research: The Art, Politics and Ethics of Undercover Fieldwork (2017), London: Sage; ‘Covert: The Fear and Fascination of a Methodological Pariah’ (pennod 31) in The Sage Handbook of Qualitative Research Ethics, golygwyd gan Ron Iphofen a Martin Tolich (2018), London: Sage.

 

Bydd y digwyddiad hwn yn archwilio ystyr ‘cael cymeradwyaeth foesegol’ a beth mae’n ei olygu i wneud ymchwil yn foesegol. Byddwn yn canolbwyntio’n arbennig ar ymchwil ethnograffeg, ond gellir trosglwyddo’r ystyriaethau i ddulliau ymholi eraill. Rydym yn ystyried bod moeseg yn cwmpasu nifer o ‘gyfnodau’ sy’n cynnwys ymhlith pethau eraill y cwestiwn cyn ymchwil, cynnal yr ymchwil mewn amser real, i’r lledaenu terfynol a defnyddio’r ymchwil.

 

Mae moeseg yn faes cynyddol ganolog a chymhleth yn ymarferol ac yn athronyddol.  Gall yr hyn y mae un ymchwilydd neu sefydliad yn ei ystyried yn foesegol, gael ei ystyried yn broblemus gan rywun arall. Ni fyddwn yn aml yn gwirio pa mor dderbyniol yw pecynnau cydsynio neu’n ystyried beth yw ystyr ‘moesegol’ mewn perthynas â’r rhai a all cael eu ‘hymchwilio’. Felly mae’n gwestiwn diddorol i’w ystyried: beth os yw’r hyn sy’n dderbyniol i sefydliad sy’n caniatáu’r hawl i ymchwilio yn gwrthdaro gyda’r hyn sy’n dderbyniol i’r rhai a all cael eu ‘hymchwilio’? Sut dylid cael cyfaddawd a lle mae hyn yn gadael yr ymchwilydd o ran cael cymeradwyaeth foesegol derfynol gan y sefydliad ar gyfer cynnal yr ymchwil?

 

Ein bwriad yw galluogi ymchwilwyr ar ddechrau eu gyrfa i roi ystyriaeth fanwl i faterion moeseg mewn cyd-destun bydol (hynny yw fel ymarfer ac arfer). Gellir ystyried y gweithdy fel ffordd o weithio drwy’r materion ‘cyn moeseg’, ‘moeseg wedi’i leoli yn y maes’, ac ‘ôl-fywyd moesegol’ y gwaith pan fydd yn gyhoeddus. Yr agwedd ‘moeseg o’r dechrau i’r diwedd’ hon fydd yn gwneud y digwyddiad hwn yn arbennig o ddefnyddiol i ymchwilwyr ar ddechrau eu gyrfa.

 

Yn ddaearyddol, mae cynnal y digwyddiad ym Mhrifysgol Bangor yn golygu y gellir mynd i’r afael â materion moesegol mewn perthynas â chymunedau lleiafrifol diwylliannol ac ieithyddol. Bydd cyfle yma i greu trafodaeth am hunaniaeth, cymuned a hawliau sifil, gan ganolbwyntio’n arbennig ar Gymru a hunaniaeth Gymraeg fel astudiaeth achos. Mae’n gyfle i gael trafodaethau buddiol, efallai’n emosiynol, a bydd y trefnwyr yn sicrhau rhyngweithio parchus ar y pynciau hyn, yn delio â nhw gyda sensitifrwydd a chydraddoldeb.

 

Bydd cyfleoedd i:

  • ddysgu trwy wrando ar siaradwyr
  • rhannu profiadau a chael cefnogaeth gan gyfoedion
  • trafod pynciau yn y gweithdai sy’n effeithio arnoch chi fel ymchwilydd ar ddechrau eich gyrfa
  • rhwydweithio gyda golwg ar gydweithio posib yn y dyfodol

 

Rhaglen:

10am Croeso a chyflwyniad

10.15am Trefnu’r gweithdai

10.30am Prif siaradwr: Dr David Calvey

11.15am Gweithdai

12.15pm CINIO

1pm Gweithdai

2pm Siaradwyr: Dr Alex Plows, Dr Alexis Paton, Dr Sara Louise Wheeler

3.15pm Panel a ‘beth nesaf?’

3.45pm Oedd hi’n werth dod yma?

4pm Mynd adref (neu ragor o rwydweithio)

 

Manylion am siaradwyr y prynhawn:

Dr Alexandra Plows, Prifysgol Bangor. Mae ei harbenigedd ymchwil yn cynnwys ymchwilio i wybodaeth leol a chyhoeddus, astudiaethau empirig o farchnadoedd llafur rhanbarthol, ac ethnograffeg ar gyfer realiti cymdeithasol di-drefn.

Mae gan Dr Alexis Paton, Prifysgol Caerlŷr, sawl blwyddyn o brofiad o sicrhau moeseg trwy ei gwaith gyda’r GIG. Mae ei hymchwil yn canolbwyntio ar wneud penderfyniadau yn y cyd-destun clinigol, gan ddefnyddio agwedd gymdeithasol-biofoeseg sy’n defnyddio gwaith empirig i edrych ar theori, polisi ac ymarfer gwneud penderfyniadau.

Dr Sara Louise Wheeler, Y Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol, Bangor University. Mae’n lluosogaethydd methodolegol a bricoleuse, gydag arbenigedd arbennig mewn awto/ ethnograffeg ac atgyrchedd, mae ganddi ddiddordebau ymchwil ac addysgu mewn hunaniaeth, perthyn diwylliannol a phrofiadau bywyd o ieithoedd, iechyd, ac ar hyn o bryd, taflwybr gyrfa gynnar.

 


Gwybodaeth am y gweithdai

Mae’r ffurflen gais ar gyfer y digwyddiad hwn yn cynnwys lle i chi ddweud beth yr hoffech ei drafod gydag ymchwilwyr eraill ar ddechrau eu gyrfa. Efallai eich bod yn chwilio am atebion neu wybodaeth i fynd i’r afael â her rydych chi’n ei wynebu neu wedi ei wynebu. Efallai yr hoffech fod yn rhan o drafodaeth gyffredinol am agwedd ar foeseg. Byddwn yn rhannu’r pynciau gyda phawb fydd yn bresennol cyn y digwyddiad, cyn belled â’ch bod yn eu cyflwyno cyn 4pm ar 3 Ebrill 2018. Anogir chi i ystyried cyflwyno eich syniad i gynnal gweithdy yn ystod y slot 10.15am. Mae’r gweithdai ar gyfer trafod yn bennaf, ac nid i ledaenu gwybodaeth. Cewch 30 eiliad i amlinellu’r hyn y dymunwch ei weld yn cael ei drafod yn y gweithdy a beth yr hoffech ei gael o’r gweithdy. Os bydd mwy o geisiadau i gyflwyno syniadau nag sydd o amser yn y ddwy sesiwn o weithdai, gellir cyfuno syniadau tebyg neu ofyn i’r rhai sy’n bresennol godi llaw dros y gweithdai sydd fwyaf o ddiddordeb iddynt. Yn ystod amser cinio, caiff rhannau o’r ystafell eu neilltuo ar gyfer trafodaeth anffurfiol a rhwydweithio am unrhyw bynciau na fydd yn cael eu trafod mewn gweithdy. Nid oes angen i chi gael yr atebion, ond mae angen i chi fod yn gyfforddus gyda chadeirio trafodaeth a gwneud yn siŵr bod y grŵp yn cofnodi’r drafodaeth ar bapur siart troi. Caiff y siartiau troi eu hadolygu gan y panel yn ystod sesiwn y siaradwr yn y prynhawn. Bydd y Panel wedyn yn siarad yn fyr am y themâu allweddol neu bwyntiau o ddiddordeb yn eu barn nhw.

 

Gweithdai fel gweithgareddau cynhyrchu data

Mewn gweithdy, mae’r rhai sy’n bresennol yn rhydd i: gytuno i rannu perchnogaeth o’r cofnodion a wnaed ar y siart troi; tynnu llun ffotograff o’r siartiau troi a’u defnyddio yn eu hymchwil eu hunain, cyn belled â bod unrhyw wybodaeth a gynhyrchir yn y gweithdy yn cael ei ddyfynnu gydag enw’r gweithdy a manylion y digwyddiad; cydweithio ar ôl y digwyddiad (e.e. ysgrifennu papur yn seiliedig ar y gweithdy neu ystyried cais am grant ar y cyd yn seiliedig ar thema’r gweithdy). Ar ôl y digwyddiad, mae’r trefnwyr yn bwriadu ysgrifennu papur am y gweithdai ar y cyd. Byddwn yn rhoi cydnabyddiaeth i bawb oedd yn bresennol fel cyfranwyr i’r papur. I gael rhagor o wybodaeth ac i archebu lle fel cynadleddwr, cysylltwch â:
