Research ethics are integral to the entire process of knowledge production: from conceptualising and designing a research project and gathering, analysing, and managing data, to writing and other forms of representation and engagement. Research ethics not only provide a set of guidelines on research methodology and conduct. They are also integral to epistemology and are deeply intertwined with power and the politics of knowledge production. As such, it is also necessary to reflect on one's positionality as part of ethical consciousness, discernment, and behavior. In this seminar, we discuss the importance of research ethics and reflexivity. Employing a critical stance on dominant research ethics paradigms, we tackle as well feminist, indigenous, and decolonial research ethics. This is not a mere theoretical exercise. Rather, the aim is to equip students to identify ethical issues, reflect on how to address these issues, make ethical choices, and ethically respond to varied research contexts and demands. Through inputs, guest talks, discussions, and exercises on reflexivity, ethics case studies, principles, and assessment, as well as crafting a research ethics strategy, the seminar aims to develop students' knowledge and skills on ethical discernment and ethical research design and praxis.
