In this moderated conversation, three U of A scholars will reflect on the work of “decolonizing” research methods, drawing on their own situated experiences, practices, relationships, and areas of scholarship. Conversation will include attention to the very idea of ‘decolonizing’ research, and how people integrate this into their teaching. Moderators will briefly introduce the recent ‘Decolonizing’ Approaches to Research at uAlberta project in which the three panelists participated.
