Moriarty Science Seminar: Academia and Indigenous Communities: Opening the Doors to Collaborative Research and Community-Driven Projects
October 9, 2023, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Hybrid: Online and At the Museum
R.W. Moriarty Science Seminar Presents: “Academia and Indigenous Communities: Opening the Doors to Collaborative Research and Community-Driven Projects”
Speaker: Jessie Ryker-Crawford, Institute of American Indian Arts.
An honest assessment of research practices and methodologies often leads to new and innovative strategies that address inclusion and accessibility between researchers and host communities. Collaborative research projects, in particular, allow for a point of entry for ongoing foundational building and networking between institutions and host community organizations—resulting in the long-lasting relationships that are so key to deep research.
This presentation will explore how initial contacts can be made, facilitating co-advisory groups that can formulate effective and meaningful research projects for all involved, soliciting community engagement, and the dissemination of research knowledge and material to a wider community audience.
Stories of events – also known as case studies – will play heavily in the sharing of insights, pitfalls, time-to-stand-up-brush-it-off-and-continue instances, and glorious successes.
This event will take place on Indigenous People’s Day, Monday, October 9,2023 at Noon in person at Earth Theater.
