Introduction: Arts-Based Methods for Decolonising Participatory Research

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientific


The foundations of academic knowledge production are increasingly questioned and contested from a diversity of perspectives. On the one hand, academic research has suffered from a legitimacy crisis in the so-called post-truth era, which has transformed the meaning of ‘truth’ and shaken the position of scientific knowledge in society. On the other hand, within academia itself, a wide range of epistemological criticisms stemming from various critical approaches have emerged and are challenging conventional forms of academic knowledge production, along with its ethical premises and value base. Calls for more participatory, horizontal and democratic research practices have become widespread.
