The three partners proposed to jointly

Traditionally, childhood and children’s everyday lives have been explored through the views and understandings of adults. This adult gaze has rendered children as objects rather than as subjects of research. Research was done on children rather than with children and was carried out by adults, who often considered themselves as experts on children’s lives. This approach

1 Sport for development in policy, practice and research Sport has a lengthy history of servicing ‘social development’ objectives. The contemporary SfD movement is thus following a well-known tradition that includes the use of sport to support, for example, ‘muscular Christianity’ in the nineteenth century and diverse development aims in the twentieth (Beacom, 2007 ; Kidd, 2011 ; Darnell, 2012 ). The use of sport for these purposes has

, stating that they wanted to tell their story, that they wanted it to be heard (see Scene 3 ). The focus of the field research was twofold: processes and encounters. As suggested in Chapter 1 , this means moving beyond top-down or bottom-up approaches in favour of ‘studying through’ (Wright and Reinhold 2011 ) citizenisation and naturalisation processes, shedding light on how policies and their effects and outcomes are not fixed but variously enacted by various actors in different settings. Furthermore, the research aligns itself with what Matthew

5 The influence of ethnomethodology on qualitative research methods As I indicated in earlier chapters, ethnomethodology arose, in large part, from Garfinkel’s concern with some fundamental methodological problems facing social science. It should not be surprising, then, that one of the fields where his work has had the greatest impact has been that of research methodology. Yet, Garfinkel himself has written very little that could be classified as falling under this heading. In the 1960s and 1970s, many sociologists – and researchers in other areas – had their

5 Curricular and pedagogical impacts of community-based research: experiences from higher education institutions Felix M. Bivens Introduction Universities no longer monopolize knowledge. Once seen as society’s primary institution for preserving, creating and disseminating knowledge, higher education institutions (HEIs) now find themselves in a world in which knowledge is too commercially valuable and omnipresent to be contained within academy walls. The advent of the knowledge economy has seen the proliferation of other organizations, many profit driven, which

Initiation of the research at RSP The idea of an anthropological assessment had been discussed at MSF for some years before my arrival in Amman. As the RSP entered its tenth year, in 2017, the organization’s determination to make an assessment that went beyond an evaluation of its medical aspects intensified. The mutual interest of the field and desk managers and CRASH, MSF

I’ve literally become a catalogue of statistics, and just irrelevant facts and info. And it’s dehumanising to be honest. If adults don’t really view you as a human then how can you view yourself? … Right now, according to the system, kids have become just another number, another statistic, and it’s not whether a child is being cared for, it’s whether they’re being dealt with.

5 Scholarship, politics and the ‘golden age’ of research A generation after Michaud’s death, the creation of an academic society devoted to crusade studies, La Société de l’Orient Latin, bore witness to a transformation of the subject. Founded by the wealthy gentleman scholar Paul Riant (1835–88), the Society produced two initial volumes of research materials, the Archives de l’Orient Latin, in 1881 and 1884 as well as later sponsoring publication of texts and producing a regular if short-lived Revue de l’Orient Latin (12 volumes, 1893–1911).
