Decolonizing Engaged Scholarship: The 2019 Ehrlich and Lynton Award Recipients in Conversation
Date & Time
Tuesday, March 31, 2020, 11:15 AM - 12:15 PM
In this interactive session, Ehrlich and Lynton award recipients Diya Abdo and Cristina Santamaria Graff will explore with each other as well as with audience members important questions about, and tensions embedded in, engaged scholarship. They will begin with a discussion around what it means to decolonize engaged scholarship and the implications of this practice in relation to how they hold themselves and important stakeholders accountable to the work. Additionally, they discuss what inspired them to begin their initiatives, how they’ve negotiated challenges in their institutions and communities, and what continues to sustain them in their work.
