Christine Rogers Stanton, assistant professor in education, will share how she uses community-based participatory research as a model to drive social justice and educational change. This presentation will highlight examples from research projects that apply a variety of qualitative methodologies, including narrative inquiry, critical discourse analysis, policy analysis, case study, and ethnography. She will discuss the importance of and the challenges related to participatory research, particularly in "cultural borderlands" places. Guidelines based on "six Rs" as identified by Indigenous scholars, leaders, educators, and co-participants, will frame the examples. Discussion will also include ways that community-centered participatory research contribues to theory, methodology and practice within and beyond the field of education.
