The Underrepresented Researchers of Color (UROC) and the American Cultures (AC) Center are proud to present Decolonizing Methods in Social Science Research, from our three-part workshop series, Demystifying the Research Process. Social science research applies to anyone wishing to work with human behaviors and practices. Some of the social science research process and methods being covered are: designing research questions, creating literature reviews, and developing social science methodologies (interviews, surveys, etc.).
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.
