Disability research by disabled and non-disabled people: towards a rational methodology of research production

Authors:
TREGASKIS Claire, GOODLEY Dan
Journal article citation:

This paper explores some of the problems and opportunities that may derive from the development of working relationships between disabled and non-disabled researchers. First a number of key barriers that face disabled researchers from the outset of research are sketched out. In seeking to identify good research practice that can challenge such barriers, it is suggested that enabling modes of research production may often be uncovered through a careful examination of the working relationships between members of research teams. This approach is illustrated through a discussion of a range of relational issues that have impacted upon the authors’ own research partnership: (i) Relating in research: Tackling fears and issues around self-disclosure; (ii) Psychoanalytic sensitivity: Privileging ontological experience and reflexivity; (iii) Towards a feminist ethics of care: Challenging methodological individualism; and (iv) Interdependence in research: towards enriched analysis. In terms of advancing an agenda for inclusive disability research, it is believed that making explicit the complexity of disabled/non-disabled research relationships like this is one practical way in which general assumptions of a binary disabled/non-disabled split may be challenged, whilst simultaneously recognizing that equitable working partnerships can only derive from the equal valuing of difference.

Authors:
BARNES Di, KENDALL Marilyn
Journal article citation:
Research Policy and Planning, 19(1), 2001, pp.17-24.
Publisher:
Social Services Research Group

When a consultation exercise is designed with disabled people, the result will be influenced by all the participants' experience of consultation and their knowledge and understanding of research. The exercise will also be a product of particular place and time. These influences are explored in a case study carried out by the authors in partnerships with disabled people; they adopted a pluralistic and flexible approach to consultation, which gave information as well as sought it, and included a commitment to developing community skills with an eye on succession.
