Call for Papers: Critically Exploring Co-production

Critically Exploring Co-production : A special issue of Qualitative Research Journal

The Gender and Education Association have been asked to share this call for papers for an exciting special issue of Qualitative Research Journal on co-production. Guest edited by Harriet Rowley, Kate Pahl, Gabrielle Ivinson and James Duggan, this special issue invites contributions that question whether university structures can accommodate research that is genuinely co-produced, highlight tensions in on-the ground co-productive practices, describe the often circuitous ways alliances emerge, and speculate about the limits and possibilities of co-production. 

This special issue invites people who are involved in co-production as practitioners as well as more academic pieces to contribute ideas. The editors envisage shorter pieces together with dialogues as well as asking discussants to reflect on some of the pieces. Experimentation with form is welcome. Initial abstracts are invited as part of this process. 

Contributions may cover the following areas: 

· Critical enquires into the role of the university in co-produced research projects 

· Co-production; research method or socio-political practice 

· Ethnography and co-production 

· Critical pedagogy and co-production 

· Arts practice and co-production 

· Creativity and co-productive practice. 

· Failure and co-production 

· Ethical dilemmas and co-production
