Community-Centered Research Panel on Feb 5th, 2019

Panel Discussion – Education Beyond Schooling: The Power of Community-Centered Research for Youth of Color
Tuesday, February 5, 2019, 12:15-1:15 (Common Hour)
Terrace Rooms B & C, Mather Student Center, Trinity College

Dr. Eujin Park

Please join us for a panel that will feature two scholars who have engaged in community-based research with youth at community organizations: Dr. Eujin Park, Research Associate, Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy, University of Illinois at Chicago and Dr. Julissa Ventura, Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellow, School of Education & Department of Ethnic Studies, University of Colorado Boulder. Dr. Park studies the educational experiences of Asian Americans, racialization processes in education, and class- and race-based inequality in schools. Dr. Ventura’s research sheds light into the important, yet often invisible work of school support staff and community youth facilitators in developing Latinx students’ sense of belonging, academic identities, and critical consciousness.

Dr. Julissa Ventura

Dr. Park and Dr. Ventura will discuss how community organizations contribute to the education of youth of color in important ways, especially by nurturing and valuing communities of color. Given that schools often fall short in supporting students of color, it is essential to pay attention to spaces where essential and nurturing work is taking place. The panelists will also discuss how they have navigated relationships with community organizations as they have engaged in research.

This event is sponsored by the Educational Studies Program and the Dean of Faculty Event Fund. A light lunch will be provided.
