Heirachies of integrity - are ethics review processes hindering decolonising geographic research approaches?

Project description

The research examines the extent to which geographic research approaches involving Indigenous people and knowledge systems are compatible with ethical guidelines. We will use latent content analysis to investigate the interactions and themes which exist in ethical frameworks, and to contextualise how research approaches which involve Indigenous knowledge systems are implemented.

Dates and duration

Duration: 6 weeks (20-36 hours per week)

Preferred start date: 25 June 2018

Expected outcomes

Scholars will gain skills in literature review and qualitative data analysis.


This project is open to UQ enrolled year 3-4 undergraduate geography students with a background in Indigenous research and qualitative research methods.
