Room 403
Senate House Malet St
Research involving the co-production of knowledge for urban equality raises ethical issues. This dialogue explores how the practice of research operates between institutionalised ethical codes and procedures, and the situated conditions on the ground. We will discuss the relevance of medical ethics for humanities research; the institutionalisation of ethics into systems and professional bodies; and the conflict between western notions of ethics based on individuality, compared to more collaborative practices of care for the other.
