‘ENGAGED SCHOLARSHIP’ IN ACTION:

REAL TIME RELFECTIONS ON A STUDY IN PROGRESS WORKSHOP

15 May 09.45 – 14.00 - G24 (Lecture Theatre C, Watson Building University of Birmingham

‘Engaged scholarship’, ‘impact’ and ‘engagement’ are vogue terms but how do they work in practice? Academics and practitioners explore the practicalities of conducting engaged research and reflect on their involvement in an ongoing programme of knowledge exchange and collaborative research between the Centre for Research in Ethnic Minority Entrepreneurship (CREME) and Ashley Community Housing Community (ACHA) to support migrant entrepreneurs. The project has three strands:

  • To understand the experiences and aspirations of new migrant business owners
  • To understand how ACHA operates and responds to change
  • To explore the dynamics of engaged scholarship, highlighting tensions and implications of key decisions
