Researching Otherwise? Autoethnographic Notes on the 2013 Stockholm Riots
Gender Studies Seminar Series in Methodologies is a series of webinars hosted by the Department of Gender Studies during the spring 2021. This second seminar welcomes Paulina de los Reyes & Markus Lundström from Stockholm University. Please note that you must register to participate in this seminar.
Market adaptation, fragmentation and precariousness have been widely documented as problematic features of knowledge production processes in the university. During this seminar, Paulina de los Reyes and Markus Lundström will present their article that follows an undercurrent of critical scholarship to explore how paths of resistance can be opened up by researching otherwise. The article builds on autoethnographic notes from a collective and non-funded research project aimed at gathering in situ narratives from people who experienced the 2013 Stockholm Riots. The research strategy behind this project, its organization as well as its results and reception, is here used as a point of departure to scrutinize the conditions of the possibility of critical knowledge production. The article draws attention to a critical place for doing research – in the cracks of the university – which arguably complicates the academic–public divide and keeps open discursive spaces during troubling moments of closure.
The seminar will be in swedish.
