On January 23rd from 2.30-4.00pm, EDGES member Dacotah-Victoria Splichalova will participate in a talk titled “Research with Impact: Conversations with Public Scholars” as part of the Language, Literacy & Education (LLED) department’s research seminar series. Dacotah is a UBC Public Scholar and, along with other panelists, will discuss what it means to be a public scholar. We all like the ideas of community engagement, social impact, public dialogue, and collaboration – but how do we prioritize these in our work, amidst many other pressing demands of academia? Join this interdisciplinary panel of PhD students/candidates/alumni to discuss some of the possibilities and challenges of public scholarship, and to hear about their ideas and experiences in reimagining academia in the service of transformation and social justice.
The event will take place in the Multipurpose Room, Ponderosa Commons Oak House 2012 on the UBC campus. Light refreshments will be served. Event website here.
