Work in Progress Workshop 19th May (2-3pm)


Kahryn Hughes and Dan Edmiston on Data Protection, Parsimony and Erasure in Social Research

Note new time of 2 -3pm (link below)

This WiP session will explore how existing methods and data practices mediate ways of knowing and responding to extreme disadvantage across the social sciences. Kahryn Hughes will discuss the challenges of working with 'invisible' people, drawing on previous research on longitudinal and intergenerational experiences for families in low-income contexts, as well as discussing new research on transient families in extreme hardship in Bradford. By focusing on the hidden struggles and costs of privation that are often mischaracterised or occluded, Dan Edmiston will discuss how current data practices undermine social understanding and explanation when it comes to poverty prevalence, severity and dynamics over time.
