Join us on April 17th from 12pm to 1:30pm to hear Dr. John Green discuss his experience with community-based research and its integration into broader academic scholarship. Dr. Green is an associate professor of sociology and the Director of the Center for Population Studies at the University of Mississippi.
Community-based research (CBR) provides a framework and set of strategies for conducting applied studies in partnership between community partners and professional researchers in a manner that is mutually beneficial. While CBR is widely known for making contributions to community change initiatives and as an avenue for service-learning in research-oriented disciplines, the scholarly contributions of CBR to broader knowledge development have not been fully explored.
This presentation will help to close the gap by connecting CBR to academic scholarship both in conceptual terms and through concrete examples. Of particular focus will be a body of scholarly work conducted through the Institute for Community-Based Research, a collaborative partnership of individuals and organizations started in 2002 with projects addressing limited resource farmers, food security, education, workforce development, and health systems.
The talk will take place from 12pm-1:30pm on Wednesday, April 17 in Lyceum 200. Coffee and dessert will be served. This event is free and open to the public. If you require assistance relating to a disability, please contact the McLean Institute at (662) 915-2052 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
