It’s a mouthful to say the name of the workshop, but my morning spent listening to Michelle Fine and her workshop, Circuits of Dispossession and Resistance: Participatory Inquiry in the Classroom and on the Streets, was brilliant. In short, “Allied with feminist, critical race, and indigenous theory, Participatory Action Research is an approach to research that values the significant knowledge people hold about their lives and experiences.” Basically, it talks about the innate expertise that people who’ve BEEN through something can offer to research and, in turn, finding solutions.
brunch afterwards with a friend at tasty n sons, where i was diggin’ on the north african sausage with egg over couscous & cauliflower – mmm, savory. (photo credit, tasty n sons)
