Co-Creating Knowledge for Justice
There is an exciting resurgence in critical public scholarship: a push for universities to reach beyond their academic audiences and build stronger community-university partnerships to jointly tackle pressing social issues. Indeed, the complexity and scale of our social ills require not only inter-disciplinary approaches but recognizing the value of community-based knowledge and its potential contribution to developing solutions to pressing problems.
Be a part of this 3-day national conference that focuses on sharing strategies to expand and deepen collaborative approaches for the truly equitable co-production of knowledge. We will explore the dynamic links between campus-community partnerships, hands-on research and student-community engagement. Together we can build partnerships for change. The conference brings together university scholars, community-based practitioners and researchers, undergraduate and graduate students, community members and organizations, foundation program officers, organizers, artists, and activists to share stories, strategies, practices, and solutions for action and the truly equitable co-production of knowledge.
