Dr. Budd Hall, Walter Lepore and Cindy Hanson will facilitate a day long workshop on the ‘promises and perils of CBPR’ at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Regina on May 26 from 9:30 AM – 3:30 PM. This is organized by the Organised by Community Based Research Canada (CBRC) and the Canadian Association for the Study of Adult Education. At the heart of Community Based Research (CBR) and Participatory Research (PR) lies the concept of co-construction of knowledge, a collective process of naming the world carried out between academics and community or social movement actors. However, as all of us who have been engaged as community activists trying to work with academics or academics learning to work in respectful ways with community groups, CBR is not easy to do. This day has been provided to share stories of CBR. This is the first event ever hosted by CBRC and CASAE at a Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences.
