FR11.10.16 Locating the Scholar in Challenging Urban Injustices

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session rests upon the premise that there are a wide range of views on the role of the scholar and the potential for scholarship to address the actors, arrangements, and processes that produce urban injustice. Participants will reflect on their assessment of the role of the scholar based on their own experience and research, offering their perspectives on the possibilities and limitations of certain modes and methods of scholarship. In addition, attention will be paid to factors that influence the direction scholars take with their research, the methods they employ, and the communities they engage; research is not only shaped by one’s interest, but by funding opportunities, disciplinary trends and research areas, and career-related concerns. The hope is that this conversation will foster a discussion that extends beyond the session and the different views represented in it.
