Dr Deborah Crook

Deborah conducts co-research that recognises that participants are experts in their own lives and should be central to social research. She is particularly interested in children and young people’s participation across the broad contexts of their everyday lives and spaces of active influence. She innovates in research with children and young people by encouraging art and mark making to express and understand often unnoticed activism and moments of resistance to oppression that normative systems may reproduce.
