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 materials, our research challenges the deeply rooted cultural oppositions such as animate versus inanimate and active versus passive that lead us to think of humans as animate agents who act upon passive, inanimate materials. It draws upon frameworks and methodologies that acknowledge that our lives are inextricably entangled with materials. These include new material feminisms, visual and sensory ethnographies, and Deleuze-inspired art-based methodologies that open up new modes of thinking and being in the world. Much of this research responds to the legacies of capitalism, the rampant accumulation of materials as well as massive amounts of trashed materials that are poisoning the planet. It seeks new ways of developing sustainable caring relations that acknowledge nonhuman entities as co-actors and co-shapers of the world.
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.
