Creating Knowledge

28 04 2008

We recently completed a workshop with Rahul Srivastava on report writing for the social sciences. From the sound of it, you might imagine it to be a straightforward exercise, which exposed us to techniques, methods, etc. It was much more. It was a philosphical investigation into the idea of knowledge — what it is, where it lies, whose ‘property’ it is. We questioned knowledge with a capital K, what it takes to make knowledge and who can produce it. What follow are student responses to workshop and some reflections on the business of knowledge production.
