ASTU 401H and 401I: Community-based research courses

11 Nov, 2017

Part-time sessional teaching, 2017 Winter Term 2 and 2018 Summer

Applications are invited for a qualified individual to teach the following 3-credit courses during the 2017 Winter Session, Term 2 (Jan-Apr 2018) and 2018 summer session (May-August 2018):

 

ASTU 401H: Community-based Research through International Partnerships: Methods (3 credits) – 2017 Winter session, Term 2

“This course provides an overview of research in the social sciences, informed by postcolonial, post-development scholarship. Focus will be given to participatory approaches that decentre the researcher by emphasizing the collaborative nature of working with community partners. We will begin by exploring issues that accompany the production of knowledge, including the operation of power through research relationships. In the international context power operates through North-South relations conditioned by histories of colonialism and imperialism. With these relations I mind, this course will introduce techniques, methods, and tools for collaborative research in cross-cultural contexts. Our goal is to identify research practices that decolonize knowledge-seeking in order to promote social justice.”

 

ASTU 401I: Community-based Research through International Partnerships: Practical Applications (3 credits) – 2018 Summer session

“This course provides an opportunity for students to gain experience in community-based research promoting social change, in this case through collaboration with an international community partner. Although ‘research’ is our focus, this course is not about you as a researcher, or about your research project. Rather, ASTU 401I explores how social research can be employed in projects for community-based development where international partnerships for reciprocal learning are at the centre. Only students who have successfully completed ASTU 401H, and who meet requirements set by the ISL Program, are eligible to enroll in ASTU 401I.”
