Open Access, Data Sharing & Archiving of Qualitative Research Workshop
This workshop, held in August 2018, was a collaborative venture between Professor Julie McLeod’s Making Futures Youth Identity, Generational Change & Education (Future Fellowship) project, the Australian Data Archive and the University of Melbourne’s Social and Cultural Informatics Platform. It brought together almost sixty researchers from around Australia to discuss ideas, interests and dilemmas regarding qualitative research sharing and archiving in the humanities and social sciences, particularly in interdisciplinary studies of childhood, youth and education.
Following on from this a pilot platform is being developed: Studies of Childhood, Education and Youth (SOCEY). It is aimed at fostering a research community and website that will discuss and showcase research, link to individual project websites, and provide a portal to an archival repository for sociology of youth and education projects.

The Making of Indigeneity, Curriculum History, And The Limits of Diversity
Routledge 2018 Ligia (Licho) López López
In the Making of Indigeneity, López interrogates how what is 'indigenous,' as a category of diversity, emerged, has been made, re-made, and is taken up to fund discourses of multiculturalism and intercultualism. Through historical and ethnographic classroom research López devices event-alizing as a methodological approximation to educational research at the limits of 'the educational' to interrogate how liberal and progressive propositions for educating the “Indian” generate particular ways of organizing difference ostensibly meant to serve historically marginalized indigenous peoples. Asking questions of the historical and scientific involvement of anthropology, sociology, law, photography, and education in the making of indigenous as a kind of people, López accounts for the aspirations, activities, and tactics that perpetuate violence on indigenous lives limiting their futurity as un-fixed beings.

Dangerous Concepts in Education
During 2017 the Dangerous Concepts Forum convened on the first Thursday of every month to ponder the different ways in which key educational concepts can be understood, deployed and contested.
In this monthly series we offered an opportunity to dialogue openly with friends and colleagues, pondering the different ways in which key educational concepts can be understood, deployed and contested. The aim was not to arrive at a shared meaning but to become more aware of different meanings and inflections of the same concept and how this makes it then, a dangerous concept, to be thoughtfully and carefully contended within educational spaces. In 2017 the forum series discussed the following concepts: potential, impact, wellbeing, gap, evidence, development and democracy. The final forum for the year discussed the question: How do we approach our work ethically in the context of dangerous concepts?
