APSY 8912 Participatory Action Research: Gender, Race, Power (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course introduces students to theoretical and practical issues in the design and implementation of field-based participatory action research, including a review of theories and practices that have contributed to community-based knowledge construction and social change. Ethnographic, narrative, and oral history methodologies are additional resources for understanding and representing the individual and collective stories co-constructed through the research process. Students participate in a series of community-based collaborative workshops and/or have ongoing collaborative work in a site. We reflect collaboratively and contextually on multiple and complex constructions of gender, race, and social class in community-based research.


Prerequisites: Restricted to PhD students except with Professor's permission.
