As researchers continue to adapt, conduct and design their research in the presence of COVID-19, new opportunities to connect research creativity and ethics have opened up. Researchers around the world have responded in diverse, thoughtful and creative ways –adapting data collection methods, fostering researcher and community resilience, and exploring creative research methods.
This book, part of a series of three Rapid Responses, explores dimensions of creativity and ethics, highlighting their connectedness. It has three parts: the first covers creative approaches to researching. The second considers concerns around research ethics and ethics more generally, and the final part addresses different ways of approaching creativity and ethics through collaboration and co-creation.
The other two books focus on Response and Reassessment, and Care and Resilience. Together they help academic, applied and practitioner-researchers worldwide adapt to the new challenges COVID-19 brings.
Helen Kara has been an independent researcher since 1999 and specialises in creative research methods and ethics.
Su-Ming Khoo is Lecturer in Political Science and Sociology, and leads the Environment, Development and Sustainability and Socio-Economic Impact Research Clusters at the National Univesity of Ireland Galway.
