In what ways can we authentically share power through our work? How do our own identities shape our research? Are there times you don’t want to use a PAR framework in your research?
These were just a few of the questions we considered with the participants of our workshop as part of the Democratizing Knowledge Institute held this past week at Spelman University. The room was filled with PhD candidates, university staff, and professors as we consider PAR and its role in creating a more just academy—one that not only centers the experiences of those most ...
PARCEO was pleased to join the Democratizing Knowledge Summer Institute 2018 at Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia, co-hosted by Syracuse University and the Women's Research and Resource Center at Spelman College. PARCEO facilitated a workshop on PAR, positionality, and community research.

PARCEO is pleased to be working with the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs and its cultural institutions to strengthen and further their equity work.
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 have had the opportunity to connect with groups from many communities that are working on a wide range of inter-connected issues, and are coming together to ...
PARCEO is excited to be working in partnership with Kristina Mazzocchi.
PARCEO and Kristina Mazzocchi share a common vision and goals for justice and dignity for all workers and for organizing and advocacy that grow out of the wisdom, knowledge, and leadership of those most impacted by systemic injustice. PARCEO has been working with a wide range of communities across the US--facilitating trainings and workshops, developing resources, engaging in community research, and building relationships. The partnership with Kristina in NY, FL, and elsewhere will build upon this ...
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, ...

As this current moment compels us to think more deeply about the ways we want to resist and organize together, we benefit from the histories and experiences of those who've fought for justice over the years in so many different ways.
Feminist Freedom Warriors is a digital video archive documenting cross-generational conversations about justice, politics and hope with feminist scholar-activists--including a member of the PARCEO team!
It's a great resource during these times.

Join us as we lead workshop activities from our Research Methods curriculum. We'll explore some of the different research methods used within a PAR framework. Considering our own positionalities, we will also discuss some of the ways these methods can be integrated into your own community-based work or research.
