The Critical PAR Institutes

 

2021 VIRTUAL INTENSIVE ON CRITICAL PARTICIPATORY ACTION RESEARCH

JUNE 2-4, 2021  9-4pm on Zoom

Due to the pandemic, we have reimagined our annual summer CPAR institute as an online CPAR Intensive. Over the course of the 3 days in early June, we will immerse ourselves in the theory, methods, and ethics of critical participatory action research, engaging large and small group discussions with experienced researchers.  Participants will be introduced to the necessary skills and knowledge to integrate a critical PAR approach into their scholarship, research, and/or organizing. This year we are especially encouraging applications from graduate students, faculty, and members of community based organizations who have projects that are ongoing or that they wish to develop. 

 

Applications for the 2021 Summer CPAR Intensive will be accepted on a rolling basis
