Creative Challenge Series – session content

24th September 2020

The Creative Challenge Series, one of Aspect’s funded projects, aims to show the scope of social science research and the artist’s relevance in today’s society as explorers of the challenges and issues that surround us.

This series of four events took place in August, and here we share a range of content relating to the sessions and themes explored.

The Creative Challenge Series included the following sessions:

  • The new normal: what is education after isolation?
  • The politics of air: how does context motivate our environmental choices?
  • Identity and data ethics: what does it mean to be human in digital space?
  • Gender dimensions: how is inequality produced and reproduced in a time of crisis?

Click here to access a diverse range of content relating to the themes explored – including podcasts, books, articles, blogs, apps and music, in addition to the videos of the talks themselves.

Should we spend more time talking about methods?

This blog by the Methods for Change team, illustrated by Jack Brougham, asks if we should spend more time talking about the methods we use as researchers. Drawing on a recent paper, we suggest that researchers need to articulate why methods matter in creating change to global challenges. We share three creative techniques that we have experimented with across the Methods for Change project that can encourage playful, reflective conversation about methods and their role in galvanising change.
