People’s Knowledge and Social Change – Discussing Participatory Research, Learning and Action at the University of Oregon

Colin Anderson Events

This workshop (slides available below) discussed how People’s Knowledge is mobilised in social and political processes of social change. Colin Anderson shared examples of how different knowledge processes and systems are employed in and beyond formal institutions (e.g. universities) in the pursuit of a more just and sustainable food system. He discussed the rationale for and principles of participatory, activist and action research and learning using case studies from the food justice and food sovereignty movements in different parts of the world. The slides below may be of interest and provide links (also at the bottom of this post) to many excellent case studies, initiatives and pieces of writing.

Thanks to the International Studies and Food Studies program at the University of Oregon for hosting.
