THE STORIES WE TELL:

MOBILE METHODOLOGIES AND MIGRANT KNOWLEDGES

  • Facebook

2019-2022

This project explores how migrant knowledges travel across borders and how research methods such as participatory methodologies can travel beyond a research project. We are also adapting this project to better respond to the challenges that migrants are facing under Covid-19. Although community engagement is a challenge in the current context, we recognize that the challenges produced by Covid-19 also speak to the realities of migrant experiences, such as not being able to interact face to face with communities and seeking connection despite physical barriers and through online technologies. Moving forward, this project will explore the mobility of methodologies and consider whether methodologies can travel as readily as stories do.

 

This project was supported by the Research Grants Council, General Research Fund.

NARRATIVE ESSAY WRITING WORKSHOP BY

All of us have a story to tell. Instead of having others tell it for us, why not get your pen, paper or even electronic devices and make sense of your life events through narrative essay writing? This 2 day workshop will introduce the genre of narrative essay. Participants will be reflecting on major life events and the lessons they have learned by using writing techniques to write their own short pieces.
