Co-production, Research and Youth and Community Work
The Professional Association of Lecturers in Youth and Community Work, in collaboration with CR&DALL and The Radical Community Work Journal invite you to an event that will explore the role of co-production and research in supporting youth work and community development.
The event is designed to be inclusive of colleagues undertaking postgraduate study, early career researchers as well as established academics. We welcome participants from across disciplines with an interest in youth work and community development as day conference delegates and presenters.
We are inviting presentations around the following 4 themes
1. Co-production with young people
2. Co-production with communities (communities of practice as well as geographical, cultural etc.)
3. Methodologies of co-production e.g. action research, developmental work research etc
4. Democratisation of knowledge through the techniques of co-production
There are two options for presenters, with abstracts requested by Friday 9th December 2016:
Option 1: Formal paper with a view to post-conference publication
A selection of papers will form the basis of a special issue of the Radical Community Work Journal. If you would like your paper to be considered for inclusion in the journal then a 2,000-word paper, which will form the basis of your presentation, will be required by 7th January 2016. The paper can be reworked post-conference in the light of conference discussions and submitted for possible publication in the Journal. Author guidelines:
Option 2: Informal presentation of a work in progress or conceptual issue
If you would like to share some of your emerging practice, research or explore a conceptual issue then this will be welcomed through visuals, slides, poster or workshop format. Please detail you proposed presentation style in the submission of your abstract.
An abstract, maximum of 400 words, is required for both options (follow this link to download an abstract template); and the style of presentation for both options should be participative and encourage dialogue.
Any questions about presentations or participation in the event can be directed to: email@example.com
