About the event

The Non-Traditional Research Methods Network celebrates the arrival of spring with an exciting network event that welcomes Dr Rosie Stenhouse, Associate Director Centre for Creative-Relational Inquiry and Head of Nursing Studies in the School of Health in Social Science, University of Edinburgh Medical School.

Rosie’s work is driven by a commitment to social justice. A key thread running through her work is a methodological focus on voice and the power relations within research production. This has led to the use of narrative and creative methodologies which deeply explore the health-related experience of marginalised groups, and creative re/presentation of these experiences as a means to decentre the authoritative voice of the researcher. Projects include digital storymaking with people with dementia, narratives of newly qualified nurses, narrative research into mental health patient experience and the development of poems to represent participants’ stories. 

In this presentation Rosie brings together her engagement with creative-relational inquiry and the use of poetry in research. Rosie will explore understanding of the relational in her work, the conceptualisation of the hyphen and the work that happens in the space between researcher and researched, writer and audience.
