Community-engaged and community-driven research: Processes and protocols
Thursday, Dec 7, 2023 at 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
The College of Rural and Community Development and the International Arctic Research Center are excited to co-host a new virtual seminar series called “A Place for Knowledge Exchange.” The monthly conversations will cover collaborative approaches to research, education and real-life community-based practices in rural Alaska.
The first seminar will focus on processes and protocols for community-engaged and community-driven research. It will take place virtually on Dec. 7 at noon. Speakers include Jessica Black, Margaret Rudolf and Stacey Lucason, Kawerak Tribal Research Coordinator.
Future seminar topics include co-stewardship, co-production of knowledge, climate impacts on traditional ways of life, food and water security, fisheries and much more.
As part of “A Place for Knowledge Exchange,” CRCD and IARC will hold quarterly collaboration brunches for faculty interested in building stronger ties between the two organizations. The location of the brunches will rotate between CRCD and IARC.
The seminar and brunches are being facilitated by:
- Josie Sam, Assistant Professor, Department of Alaska Native Studies and Rural Development and International Arctic Research Center
- Jessica Black, Associate Vice Chancellor for Rural, Community and Native Education
- Sonta Roach, Assistant Professor, Department of Alaska Native Studies and Rural Development
