Action Research for Social Justice: Changing the Climate for Research and Teaching

 

17 June 2015 12:30 pm to 1:45 pm
Elvet Riverside 2; New Elvet, Durham, DH1 3JT,

This seminar forms part of the Connected Communities Festival that is taking place across the UK during 15-29th June 2015. The mission of the Action Research Center at the University of Cincinnati is to “promote social justice and strengthen communities, locally and globally, by advancing research, education, and action through participatory and reflective practices.” In this presentation, we will discuss the ways in which we work to embody these values in our own research and teaching through developing relationships with individuals, groups and organisations outside the University. In particular, we will focus on the relational nature of our collaborations and how we are attempting to create an alternative space within the university in which cooperation, caring, and mutual support inform practice.
