The University of Minnesota's President's Interdisciplinary Conference
Initiative supports inquiry that fosters collaboration between scholars
in divergent fields and across institutions. This interdisciplinary
conference addresses the question: What are the epistemological and
ethical considerations in research with immigrant populations? The
purpose of this conference is to engage university and community
colleagues and students from a variety of disciplines and interests in
consideration of this and other questions about ethics and epistemology
in their research practices.
Participants in this conference will include individuals from diverse
methodological and disciplinary areas, such as education, social work,
anthropology, urban studies, the humanities, and the health professions.
The conference will emphasize the implications of practices in research
design, data collection, analysis and writing of research that involves
immigrant populations. These conversations will include concerns related
to Institutional Review Boards, as well as those that move beyond IRB,
including presentation and dissemination of findings, sharing of
research design, and advocacy issues.
We invite proposals that address researchers’ dilemmas as they move
into, through, and beyond their work with immigrant communities.
To sustain and extend the work and conversations of this conference, we
will select a small number of conference presentations for revision and
publication in a peer-reviewed edited book.
We encourage the following types of submissions:
Individual presentations, such as research reports or academic papers,
artistic expressions or performances, and structured dialogs between
researchers and community partners about negotiating research dilemmas
Symposia of three or four related research reports or academic papers.
For more information about themes addressed by the conference and to
submit a proposal, please visit www.cehd.umn.edu/Immigrant-Research.
