Der vorliegende Band versammelt einführende Beiträge, die einen Überblick über das Feld kritischer Psychologien im deutsch- und englischsprachigen Raum sowie deren methodisch-methodologische Implikationen verschaffen. Damit begegnet er einem zunehmenden Interesse an jenen Theorie- und Forschungsansätzen, die im Zuge einer paradigmatischen Engführung der Psychologie seit den 1990er Jahren fast vollständig aus dem akademischen Betrieb verschwunden sind. Im Fokus der Beiträge stehen die Grundlagen psychoanalytischer, marxistischer, sozialkonstruktionistischer und queer-feministischer Psychologie.

Ausgehend von den revolutionären Theaterbewegungen Lateinamerikas in den 1960er- und 1970er-Jahren, deren Ziel ein politischer Bewusstwerdungsprozess zur Mobilisierung der Volksmassen zur Demokratisierung der Länder war, hat sich das von Augusto Boal begründete Theater der Unterdrückten seit seiner Entstehung gewandelt, auch und gerade mit Blick auf sich verändernde Weltbilder und die seither eingetretenen Änderungen im sozialen Bereich und in den Produktionsbedingungen. 2003 wurde in der Grundsatzerklärung des Theaters der Unterdrückten als dessen Ziel die Humanisierung der Menschheit an sich deklariert. Birgit Fritz untersucht die Entwicklung des Theaters der Unterdrückten, insbesondere die Zusammenhänge zwischen seinen Intentionen und einer Ästhetik der Wahrnehmung. Sie belegt überzeugend ihre Hauptthese, dass das Theater Augusto Boals auch jenseits seines ursprünglichen historischen und gesellschaftlichen Kontexts im 21. Jahrhundert zur nachhaltigen Entwicklung von heilenden und lernenden Gesellschaften beitragen kann. Das als autopoietisch verstandene Theater Boals bietet einerseits Raum für Selbstschöpfung, Wahrnehmungsschulung und Kommunikation, andererseits stellt es auch einen sensiblen künstlerischen Weg dar im Prozess für dynamischen, sich als transrational verstehenden Frieden. Wer auch immer unter Nutzung der Methoden Augusto Boals und verwandter Mittel der emanzipatorischen Bildung mit künstlerischen Mitteln einen Beitrag zu gesellschaftlicher Transformation leisten möchte – gleich, ob im Bereich der Friedensarbeit, Sozialarbeit oder als Künstler_in oder Theatermacher_in –, für den ist das vorliegende Buch ein unverzichtbarer Ratgeber sowohl in praktischer Hinsicht als auch mit Blick auf den theoretischen Hintergrund, die Entstehungsgeschichte des lateinamerikanischen Volkstheaters und seine Bedeutung in einem aktuellen gesellschaftlichen Kontext.

Supported bilaterally by Sweden and Norway, the Scandinavian Action Research Development Program (ACRES — Action Research in Scandinavia) emphasized conceptualizing research questions and self-conscious writing processes for experienced action researchers. Participants came from Norway, Sweden, Finland, Holland, Great Britain, and the United States. A learning experiment in the tradition of Scandinavian industrial democracy, ACRES had both intellectual and organizational tensions common to action research projects. This book includes theoretical and historical overviews of action research, reflections on the writing process, narratives about the design and difficult internal processes of ACRES, and a selection of the participants’ writings. A particularly unique feature of the book is the discussion of the problematic relationship between action research and conventional modes of research writing and an analysis of the complex social processes collaboratively managed projects create, in combination with a set of participant cases.

Wageningen Univerisity and Research Centre is known for its practical and societally relevant research in spatial development. Stakeholders currently put much emphasis on participatory processes in landscape planning procedures. This poses a special challenge for research. What role does research play in our present world characterised by complexity, competing claims and development needs, and an increased concern for climate change and environmental impact? In the book 'Knowledge in Action' we explore different types of transdisciplinary research that scientists engage in. Depending on the societal context and the interests of local citizens, researchers apply different research approaches to optimally incorporate the various points of view in their research and promote processes enhancing dialogue and shared results. In the book authors present their research experiences: their theoretical inspiration, the research methodology applied to consult, share and collaborate with societal actors in order to create options for change. The book includes several striking examples from The Netherlands (both successful and less effective), and also innovative examples from communities in Africa and Asia. The authors reflect on opportunities, problems and dilemma's they had to deal with. They especially address how far the role and theoretical perspectives of collaborative researchers can lead them in action research. Can they limit themselves to joint knowledge production and learning processes or should they engage in strategic positioning, advocacy and entrepreneurship to make it happen? The book discusses the issues that researchers should consider when they position their research activities within ongoing developments at landscape level. Read the book and judge for yourself.

The new series that looks afresh at how theory and research methods can inform change, and integrate social justice in economic and policy decision making Actionable Research for Social Justice in Education Series With a commitment to promoting social justice and reducing inequalities in education, this series aims to promote research and interventions that support social transformation through collaborations of researchers with leaders in schools and colleges. The series informs reform in practice, teaching, organizations, and policy. A professional text written for social science researchers and practitioners, Research, Actionable Knowledge and Social Change provides strategies and frameworks for using social science research to engage in critical social and educational problem solving. Combining the best practices of critical analysis and traditional research methods, this professional text offers guidance for using the Action Inquiry Model (AIM), a transformative model that explains how to successfully conduct action-oriented research in a multitude of professional service organizations. The aim of the text is to encourage a new generation of research-based partnerships reforms that promote equity and access for underserved populations. Topics discussed include: * The historical precedents for universities engaged in social change * The limitations of current social science theory and methods * The critical-empirical approach to social research * The issues relating to social justice within the policy decision process * The use of social research to integrate an emphasis of social justice into economic and policy decision making Research, Actionable Knowledge and Social Change does not propose different foundations for social research, but rather argues that it is necessary to reconsider how to work with theory and research methods to inform change. This text can also be used by students enrolled in graduate and Ed.D/Ph.D Higher Education Leadership programs and graduate programs across professional fields including K-12, public administration, sociology, health, cultural studies, organizational development and organizational theory. It further offers students guidance for research design and dissertation research.
