About the Workshop
This workshop series is designed for Stanford graduate students interested in learning more about and developing skills in community-engaged scholarship and community-based research. Invited speakers include leaders and practitioners across disciplinary fields.
Join us for a compelling discussion exploring participatory and community-engaged approaches to data analysis and publication.
This session will answer a key question within community engaged scholarship: How do you continue to collaborate on community-engaged research projects after the data have been collected?
Karletta Chief, Melissa Arcand, and Nidia Ruedas-Gracia will share their approaches to collaborative and reciprocal research relationships, particularly in the data analysis and writing processes.
The Zoom link will be sent in advance.
Dr. Melissa Arcand is from the Muskeg Lake Cree Nation and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Soil Science at the University of Saskatchewan. As a soil biogeochemist, Dr. Arcand has developed a new area of applied and interdisciplinary research in Indigenous agricultural land management. Working closely with First Nations land managers, they are assessing the effects of long-term agricultural leasing on soil health and reconsidering notions of agricultural land “capability” on First Nations lands.
Dr. Karletta Chief is an Associate Professor and Extension Specialist in the Department of Environmental Science at the University of Arizona. Dr. Chief is Diné originally from Black Mesa, AZ. Her research focuses on how Indigenous communities will be affected by climate change. She has collaborated with an interdisciplinary group of scientists to determine how hydrological models can be improved to identify and mitigate risks to vulnerable populations. She brings relevant science to Native American communities in a culturally sensitive manner by providing hydrology expertise, transferring knowledge, assessing information needs, and developing applied science projects.
Dr. Nidia Ruedas-Gracia is an Assistant Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Her research seeks to develop a nuanced understanding of what it means to "belong" and how this sense of belonging impacts life outcomes such as academic performance and mental health. Her work focuses on exploring these concepts among culturally diverse populations and examining how sense of belonging is associated with various social identities (gender, race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, etc.).
