2021 Gender and Equity Research Symposium Connecting Theory, Inquiry and Practice: Working with CommunitiesJoin the Symposium
5th Annual Gender and Equity Research Symposium:
Becoming Change Agents in our Theory, Inquiry, and Practice
- Theory – How we understand complex social issues. How we approach these issues. How we make sense of the world around us.
- Inquiry – What we discover and learn about how social problems occur. Who we study and how we amplify their voices.
- Practice – How we take what we’ve learned in research and from critical theories and use them in our classrooms, our campus, and in our communities. How our practice changed over time. Practice can be understood as personal practice, our experiences as activists, and the ways we resist oppression.

Thematic Research Session: Our Voices, Our Bodies, Our Experiences as Sites of Theory, Inquiry, and Practice
This session features the work of scholars who have given serious thought to how their work shapes and is shaped by their social, political, and cultural environments and their communities. Topics include using research to create curriculum-based programs for communities; autoethnography and the experience of miscarriage as a socially constructed experience; and how identity may create some methodological challenges. This session includes the work of scholars from NC State, Fayetteville State University and Appalachian State University.

Panel: Connecting Theory, Inquiry and Practice: Working with Communities
