Institute for Community Research Conference

Posted by on February 20, 2004

Application Deadline: March 15, 2004

The Institute for Community Research (ICR) in Hartford, CT is sponsoring “Crossroads: Critical Issues in Community-Based Research”, a national conference that will critically explore issues related to community-based research partnerships, methodology, and methods of dissemination. The conference will take place June 10-13, 2004 in Hartford, CT.

ICR is currently accepting applications for workshop and panel discussion proposals that address how class, ethnicity, race, gender, culture and power impact research partnerships; gaps between communities and the institutions that serve them (e.g., schools, clinics, after-school programs, political representatives); and ways that participatory or collaborative research partnerships can remedy these and other cultural, health, environmental and economic policy oriented problems.

Recognizing that community-based collaborative research (CBCR) is a growing field, the conference is aimed at developing a critical analysis of current approaches which move us to the next level in improving our relationships and methods. The conference will explore and critique core dimensions of CBCR in the following areas: Theory, Ethics, Methods, Skills, Use of Research Results and Topical Issues.
