ANTH 382 - Methods in Participatory Action Research

Semester Offered: Fall
0.5 unit(s)
Participatory Action Research (PAR) is aimed at generating knowledge in order to promote social and organizational change. This course engages students in PAR specifically around the topic of inclusion and thriving at Vassar College, in order to learn more about where and how institutional efforts at inclusion succeed, and how they might be improved. Students select from a range of research topics, and then are guided through the processes of information gathering, social analysis, and representation of their observations and findings. The overarching aim is for students to gain a critical perspective on how to conduct research on social organizations, the knowledge of which can inform how scholars link research to action. Candice Lowe Swift and Wendy Maragh Taylor.
