Description

The Indigenous Studies Discussion Group (ISDG) presents a panel to evaluate what ‘community-based’ approaches and research have done in the last decades, and where they will take academia.

Download the event poster.

The panel will cover the pros and cons of this approach, explore how relationships between ‘community’ and ‘researchers’ have changed, and hear from the mouths of stakeholders and researchers involved in communities and research about them. Often community-research is perceived through a utilitarian lens and taken for granted, with important questions of effective practice or even the legitimacy of some practices left unasked and unanswered.

The panel includes 3 speakers, each of which will give a presentation for 15 minutes. The remainder of the panel will be a discussion between the speakers and the audience, including questions.
