Working together: a methodological case study of 'engaged scholarship'

Cuthill, Michael (2010) Working together: a methodological case study of 'engaged scholarship'. Gateways: International Journal of Community Research and Engagement, 3. pp. 20-37. ISSN 1836-3393


The concept of engaged scholarship, as a 'new' and participatory approach to knowledge production, has received much attention over the past decade. However, the term is clouded in ambiguity. This paper presents some introductory discussion around concepts of engaged scholarship, and then focuses in detail on a methodological case study of participatory action research as an example of engaged scholarship in practice. Discussion revolves around reflections on practice, drawing largely from recent reports on participatory democracy and the role of universities in society.
