OVERVIEW | The 2‐day symposium will raise the challenges and possibilities of engaged scholarship, practiced with a commitment to solidarity, in which communities traditionally researched and spoken for, collaborate in academic research to ask their own questions, challenge inequalities, and engage the struggle for a more just world.
Participants are expected to attend both days of the symposium, as each day will offer distinct opportunities to learn about traditional and non-traditional data driven projects, and time to workshop projects with the broader group, while receiving guidance from Maria and Michelle.
**Attendance with current or potential project team members is encouraged!**
