How do we use research to transform our communities and contribute towards social change? How do we connect researchers and multiple publics for critical and transformative dialogue? What does DOING social justice work, beyond the academy, look like?
In our upcoming Global Community Conversation, Beyond the Ivory Tower: Practising Public Sociology, our speakers share insights and strategies for public sociology praxis: i.e., through community engagement and building successful community partnerships. Join us as we discuss accountability, trust and ethical research relationship, engagement and partnership building with diverse and underserved communities through research, advocacy, and engagement.
