Power/knowledge relations and the roles of scientists in science shop projects
Abstract and Figures
Landscape research is increasingly taking the form of action research. This article explores which consequences this has for the roles of scientists and knowledge. It presents a theoretical perspective for understanding the power/knowledge dynamics at work in action research projects and draws on the science-shop project SintJan Kloosterburen to illustrate how roles and knowledge are actively negotiated between involved actors and inf luenced by the wider societal debate in which the research process is embedded. Although action researchers often present themselves as heroes and bringers of knowledge, the actual processes and mechanisms at work urge another understanding of the role of researchers and knowledge within action research.
