Indigenous engagement workshop
March 19 – April 9, 2021 (online)
Conducting research in an Indigenous context requires cultural sensitivity and knowledge of this environment, but also to develop a collaborative and open approach that often transcends our ways of doing things in an academic setting.
Organized in collaboration with the Littoral Research Chair, the purpose of this intensive workshop is to assist participants in the development of their professional and intercultural skills towards constructive, respectful and sustainable relationships with northern Indigenous communities involved in their research projects.
At the end of this training, participants will gain an understanding of engagement practices and how to conduct meaningful dialogue and engage with Indigenous communities, organizations and/or governments.
This training will be provided in English.
Who is it for?
This workshop is designed for early career researchers planning to work with Indigenous communities as part of their project. It is open to graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and professionals from different fields of research.
To provide an optimal learning environment for the group, this workshop is limited to 20 participants. Priority will be given to students from Université Laval.
Applications are open until February 24, 2021.
