Practicing Community-engaged Scholarship during COVID-19
By Stephanie Maroney
"Community-engaged scholarship is challenging at the best of times, but it is uniquely difficult in this current pandemic and with the social distancing efforts required to stop the spread of COVID-19. Moreover, many scholars are working with communities already made vulnerable by long-festering social inequities, and who now face compounding oppressions due to an inadequate public health response and continued racialized violence. The Davis Humanities Institute honors the UC Davis scholars who are committed to public scholarship in these unprecedented times; here we share some of the challenges and responses of our community-engaged researchers."
