Community Research with Association for Higher Education (ASHE)

At PARCEO’s recent workshop and presentation for ASHE’s Community Research Institute with higher education scholars, professors, and researchers from across the country, held in Indianapolis, Indiana, questions were raised and addressed that we’ve been considering together with many of the groups with which we partner, such as: Why and how is PAR a valuable framework for research? Who determines and what constitutes being “part” of a community and how does that manifest in terms of language, project development, and who is in the room making decisions from the beginning? And how does that relate to authorship and shared work? How do you even ...

2017 and Beyond

As we move into 2018, we are taking the opportunity to reflect upon the past year and to think about all that is ahead of us. It’s been a particularly busy and challenging year and many groups with which we collaborate have expressed to us that PARCEO’s work and methodology have had particular relevance and resonance for the organizing that is happening across the country during this very trying moment.

We believe PARCEO’s ...

Democratizing Knowledge: Institutions, Research, and Trauma

Over the last couple of years we have started working with institutions more and more. At first this felt like a separate branch of our work, which has been grounded in our community collaborations. Increasingly, however, we see the ways that these seemingly different contexts are actually really interconnected, mutually supportive, and often overlapping in value and purpose. Last week we spent 3 days with the Democratizing Knowledge Collective at Syracuse University, an example of how those we work with are not just part of institutions, but part of community groups, invested in their own communities, and interested in understanding how their work ...
