The Praxis Lab
A GROUNDED THEORY OF CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE RESEARCH
WHY CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE?
Since Ladson-Billings (1995) published on culturally relevant pedagogy, culturally responsive research (CRR) has been engaged under a number of names (e.g., culturally sensitive, culturally competent) and through a number of practices. At the same time, researchers are working in environments increasingly hostile to core concepts/goals of CRR, seen in measures such as anti-diversity, equity, and inclusion legislation and public protest of critical race theory.
In this project, we seek to develop a deeper understanding of why, how, and who for CR researchers engage under this umbrella, and the successes and tensions they face.
To participate, you will be asked to complete a screening survey
(found here: CRR screening survey) and if eligible sit with us for an interview lasting 60-90 minutes.
