EJ Milne is a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations at Coventry University in the UK. Her research focuses on people in transition (including young people and those identifying as LGBTQI, migrants and refugees); the politics and ethics of research and methodological innovation (including arts based methods, community based research, critical participation, sensory and visual methods and their applied ethics). Her work seeks to further the development of more negotiated processes of knowledge production working not only in the interests of the academy, but also participants and their communities.
Her publications include ‘Visual activism and social justice: making young people’s lives visible across ‘public’ and ‘private’ spaces’, Current Sociology (with Sarah Wilson, forthcoming); ‘Critiquing participatory video: experiences from around the world’, AREA (forthcoming); ScotCen (2015) Wee favours, everyday help and support: the Glasgow Study. York: Joseph Rowntree Foundation; and Milne, E-J. Mitchell, C. and de Lange, N. eds. (2012) The Handbook of Participatory Video. Lanham MD: AltaMira Press.
EJ is the UK co-representative on the Pool of European Youth Researchers (PEYR), an expert panel established by the European Commission and the Council of Europe to advise on European youth policy and research; and Vice President of the International Sociological Association Visual Sociology Group (WG03).
