Brown Bag Lunch: Speaker Series
MEET JANICE WIENS, DANA JENNEJOHN AND SUSAN PRESTON, SOCIAL WORK FACULTY WHO ARE USING ANTI-OPPRESSIVE PRINCIPLES TO CULTIVATE SOCIAL SCIENCE RESEARCH IN YUKON
Northern social science research is under-represented in current scholarship about the north and social service delivery. As part of the social sciences stream, much of the current social work research about the north has been informed by southern/urban norms and the research agenda typically has not been driven by Yukon people.
To address this, the research capacity of local people needs to be further developed. Building collaborative partnerships between outside researchers and local educators and practitioners informed by anti-oppressive principles, can advance knowledge that is locally relevant and scientifically rigorous, as a potential model for research.
Join Janice Wiens, Dana Jennejohn (Yukon College) and Dr. Susan Preston (Ryerson University) to learn how these principles have informed Yukon social work research projects completed thus far by this team.
