CYPIRN Emerging Scholars Roundtable
Are you an emerging scholar undertaking research with children and young people? Are you interested in meeting like-minded scholars to share innovative and collaborative methods for working with young people in Canada? The Children & Young People Interdisciplinary Research Network (CYPIRN), in collaboration with the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies at York University, is hosting its second annual Emerging Scholars Roundtable to bring together junior researchers from across disciplines to share their current research, to reflect on methods for working with and in communities, and to create a space for dialogue about best practices and new strategies for undertaking research on children and young people in the territories known as Canada.
We are particularly interested in hearing from researchers who are committed to equity, social justice, decolonization, anti-racist work, and collaborative research practices with children and young people. The Emerging Scholars Roundtable seeks to create a space for knowledge sharing, dialogue and informal presentations on research. The event will feature short presentations (10 minutes) from five emerging scholars on work-in-progress, followed by a discussion and refreshments. This is a great chance to share and discuss your work with others who are conducting research with children and young people in Canada.
Interested in presenting? Please submit a short abstract (200 to 300 words) outlining your current research project, along with a short biography (150 words) to email@example.com. Submission deadline: extended to March 8.
The roundtable will take place at the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies (seventh floor, Kaneff Tower, Keele Campus) on Tuesday, April 2 from 12:30 to 2 p.m.
