SJRI Workshops are an opportunity for SJRI affiliates and other interested individuals (e.g. undergraduate students, graduate students, post-doctoral students, affiliates, participating members) to connect to share knowledge and/or learn about various topics related to transdisciplinary social justice research. Possible topics include:

  • funding opportunities for and the planning/management of transdisciplinary social justice research projects
  • ethical and applied issues in conducting collaborative research
  • data sources of possible use in conducting social justice research
  • techniques that inherently reflect or embrace a social justice stance in how they collect data
  • community-based research ethics
  • critical visual methods
  • writing for activists

These workshops are intended to be less structured and more hands-on than traditional paper presentations.

Please email if you would like to propose a topic and/or lead a future workshop.

As an example, in collaboration with Brock’s Community and Government Relations Office and with United Way Niagara, we co-hosted a three-part EDI workshop series. You can learn more about each of these sessions here and you can access the final report here.
