Decolonizing Research - Alternative Research Methodologies in Western Academic Institutions.
Time & Location
About The Event
The Deep Water Initiative (DWI), Student Union, and the Center for Writing and Scholarship at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) would like to invite you to join us for an online conference in Spring 2021 entitled – Decolonizing Research – Alternative Research Methodologies in Western Academic Institutions.
The current social and political climate within the US presents students within Western academic institutions with a unique opportunity to engage in a dialogue about the role that research can play in decolonizing institutional paradigms. How can scholars, from all walks of life, redefine the current boundaries of our academic paradigms by applying “Alternative Research Methodologies” to their work? Furthermore, in an increasingly challenging research environment, how do scholars apply these methodologies within a theoretical and qualitative framework whilst embodying the principle of relationality in their research?
To attend this conference please register on this page and further details will be sent to you during the month of April.
Submissions for this conference are open to the CIIS community and their co-researchers.
This conference welcomes CIIS students, recent alumni (graduated in the past two years), and faculty to submit proposals, projects, presentations and performances that address the following question:
How are researchers, from a diversity of backgrounds, adopting Anti-racist, Decolonial, and Indigenous Research Methodologies from within Western academic institutions in increasingly challenging times?
Proposals can take the form of an individual or co-presentation, or a virtual arts performance. Presentations should be 15 – 20’ in length. Proposals should address the applicant’s own research, with a focus on one’s engagement with the application of Anti-racist, Decolonial, or Indigenous Research Methodologies.
Participants should submit a 300-word abstract alongside a 50-word bio.
The deadline to submit proposals will be February 12, 2021, via the google forms link https://forms.gle/5GecFCvvTjaVYmma9.
The above conference follows off the back of the recent Fall Online Panel entitled: Decolonizing Research – Indigenous Research Methodologies in Western Academic Institutions. You can watch the full panel on YouTube
