Abstract

This chapter introduces this edited volume by articulating an agenda for apprehending scholars’ multiple and multifaceted precarious positions that constitute a springboard for the subsequent chapters’ assorted engagements with the proposition of researchers at risk. This agenda is framed in terms of a dual focus on presenting selected conceptualisations of researchers’ risks, and of synthesising particular strategies that researchers have demonstrated to be effective in engaging with those risks. These conceptualisations and strategies constitute in turn empirically grounded manifestations of the precarity, jeopardy and uncertainty that accompany certain aspects of contemporary researchers’ work. The chapter also outlines the clustering of the subsequent chapters into four parts, each directed at a different form of research risk: researchers’ identities; researchers’ professions; subject matter; and conflict-laden locations.
