The Common Worlds Research Collective is an interdisciplinary network of researchers concerned with our relations with the more-than-human world. In following children and young people’s relations with other species, our research works against the premises of exclusive human agency and paramount human interests. Instead it draws upon frameworks and methodologies that re-focus upon child/plant/animal interactions, entanglements and co-shapings. These include multispecies ethnographies, multi-sensory and affect-focused methods, and textual methods that examine the role of child/animal/plant narratives and deconstruct their discursive formations and effects. Much of this research responds to colonial and ecological legacies, such as the anthropogenic escalation of species extinctions, which provide context to contemporary children and young people’s relations with other species. It seeks news ways of fostering ethical, recuperative and flourishing multispecies futures.
Desired skills: An interest in conducting creative and interdisciplinary qualitative and ‘post-qualitative’ research. A desire to contribute and participate in The Ediths, a supportive research network.
