Description

Connecting Epistemologies in Connected Communities: Lessons from a Quasi-Elite Community A poster reporting the discussions from the project's first event, a workshop held at City University London on 2/5/2014, that involved talks from Jude Fransman and Ros Gill about their research into the experience of academic labour, and discussions among early career researchers on Connected Communities about their experiences of those projects and how they differed (or didn't) from other projects they've worked on. These discussions focused on the tension between precariousness and opportunity that the ECR experience often entails, and some possible models in which the situation could be different. The poster shows some of the major parts of this discussion, and explains the research team's next step: to work with ten Connected Communities researchers to better understand their experiences of a quasi-elite position in the academic world. Speakers: Dr Dave O'Brien, City University London Project Link: http://earlycareerresearchers.wordpress.com/ Presented at the AHRC Connected Communities Festival 2014 on Tuesday 1st July 2014.
