Seminar Series - Decolonizing Global Health Research III: Jane-Finch Community Research Partnership

November 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research will be hosting the Jane-Finch Community Research Partnership as part of our two-year Decolonizing Global Health Research Seminar Series. This is an Institute-wide commitment to decolonizing global health and addressing racial inequality in and through the research conducted.

This seminar will feature the team from the Jane-Finch Community Research Partnership, who will highlight their approaches to conducting inclusive, respectful, ethical research within the community. This includes the development of guided modules with tools to conduct community-based research.

The Dahdaleh Institute’s Decolonizing Global Health Research Seminar Series

What does decolonization mean? Can scientific public health and humanitarian research be decolonized, and if so, how? What are the ethical challenges of decolonized research methods? How can we design and develop research methods that meaningfully engage with marginalized communities? And how can peoples’ deeply personal and generational experiences with structural racism and intersectional violence sensibly be translated into practical responses and policies?

These are some of the questions we seek to engage with as part of our commitment to acknowledging personal and collective biases and positionalities in relation to global health and humanitarianism. We see this as a fundamental step to foster the elaboration of methodologies, collaborations and actions that center decolonial and intersectional lenses.
