The Community-Based PhD:
Complexities, Triumphs, Missteps, and Joys of Community-based & Participatory Action Research as Graduate Students
Are you a graduate student who has or is currently engaged in CBPR and willing to share your experiences and the lessons you’ve learned? We want to hear from you! Consider contributing a chapter or creative or arts-based piece (graphic narrative, poetry or creative writing, etc.) to our edited volume “ The Community-Based PhD ”. We are looking for contributors at any stage of the research/writing process, in any discipline. We are looking for contributors who can share complex and nuanced experiences of CBPR graduate work. We welcome contributions that detail the challenges and complexities you’ve faced and we are also interested to learn how the triumphs and joys of your work.
While we are aware that scholars are often reluctant to be open about and highlight their mistakes, we feel it’s important to document and share experiences of our failures and missteps along with reflections on how you might do things differently. This will be a peer-reviewed volume so we ask that you ground your experiences in the scholarly literature of community-based work and CBPR (“The Community-Based PhD”) will be a peer-reviewed edited volume and we are currently exploring publishing options with several presses. The abstract submission deadline for abstracts is April 1. The deadline for submissions is August 1, 2019. We anticipate publication in late 2020.
Email Sonya Atalay ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) and Alexandra McCleary ( email@example.com ) with your name, institutional affiliation, title and brief (1-2 paragraph) abstract of your contribution. Length of chapters will depend on the number of participants we have.
