Research Justice: Methodologies for Social Change and Societal Transformation Colloquium

Wed, Nov 16, 2016, 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm

2538 Channing (Inst. for the Study of Societal Issues), Wildavsky Conference Room

Andrew Jolivette, Professor and former Chair, American Indian Studies Department, SFSU


This talk examines how we can approach research from new ways that center collective responsibility and and shared ownership over the research process. In particular Jolivette will review the thinking behind the development of his edited volume, Research Justice: Methodologies for Social Change and the influential work of Dr. Linda Tuhiwai Smith and Dr. Michelle Fine who are contributors to this project. Central to the presentation and discussion will be the work of the DataCenter, a grassroots community-based organization in Oakland where the term Research Justice was coined.

Books will be available for sale and signing at this event.
