Workshop Description
This discussion and case-based course explores ethical dilemmas in collaborative and action forms of research. Issues include:
  • power dynamics (e.g., race, class, gender, language, institutional)
  • relational vs. transactional approaches to consent
  • epistemic injustice and whose knowledge counts
  • data gathering, interpretation, and dissemination
  • advocacy, neutrality, and (dis)interested research
  • Institutional Review Boards (IRBs).

Readings and/or handouts feature, original cases developed by instructors through interview data collected from engaged scholars and school and community partners, professional associations’ ethical frameworks, and publications about collaborative community-based research.

Small group discussions, role-play activities, and quick-writings will facilitate participants’ ethical reflection. The course aims to prompt ethical engagement with social science research methodologies and to foster a network of researchers for ongoing support.
