The Underrepresented Researchers of Color (UROC) and the American Cultures (AC) Center are proud to present Decolonizing Methods in Humanities Research, from our three-part workshop series, Demystifying the Research Process. Humanities research applies to anyone wishing to study human culture and creations – including the arts, literature, policy, and more. Some of the humanities research process and methods being covered are: exploring themes/research interests, discussing primary and secondary sources, and analyzing primary archives.

This particular workshop grounds research in a history of research as a site of violence and trauma for marginalized communities. This is the point of departure for discussing the humanities research process and methodologies, to enable students structure methods of decolonization into their research projects. Free pizza will be provided.
