33. Roundtable | A Current and Critical Evaluation of an “Ethical [re]Turn”
Chair: Lois Klassen, Emily Carr University of Art + Design
lois(at)loisklassen.com

With a multitude of voices decrying ethics in computational research (for the internet of things, big data, smart city, robotics, machine learning, AI), and in hearing the critique of procedural ethics for ineffectiveness in addressing inherent racial and gender biases in all manner of research methods, this session will focus on arts-based research (including research-creation) and its current challenges. This session invites papers and presentations that reflect on how arts-based or research-creation methodologies are facing sites of ethical demand. Case studies or critical reflections might describe: artists’ work inside multi-disciplinary tech projects; art interventions in sites of human rights violations; intersections of Indigenous ethics and protocols with institutional procedures; alternate consent in arts-based research; deception in activist or interventional research-creation; or, pedagogy on research conduct or research ethics for artists. The aim of this roundtable is to gather current practices as a way to inform and challenge researchers and research ethics reviewers in a current revival of ethical demand and ethical critique.

We invite 300-word abstracts of the proposed papers to be sent along with a short academic CV to Lois Klassen, lois(at)loisklassen.com
