Research and Reconciliation

Unsettling Ways of Knowing through Indigenous Relationships

By Shawn Wilson, Andrea V. Breen, Lindsay DuPré

Description

In this edited collection, leading scholars seek to
disrupt Eurocentric research methods by introducing
students, professors, administrators, and practitioners to
frameworks of Indigenous research methods through a
lens of reconciliation.


The foundation of this collection is rooted in each
contributor’s unique conception of reconciliation, which
extends beyond the parameters of Canada’s Truth and
Reconciliation Commission to include a broader, more
global approach to reconciliation. More pointedly,
contributors discuss how effective research is when it is
demonstrated through acts of reconciliation.


Encouraging active, participatory approaches to
research, this seminal text includes a range of examples,
including a variety of creative forms, such as storytelling,
conversations, letters, social media, and visual
methodologies, that challenge linear ways of thinking
and embrace Indigenous ways of knowing and seeing.
This collection is a go-to resource for all disciplines
with a research-focus, including Indigenous studies,
sociology, social work, education, gender studies, and
anthropology.



Features:

    transmission that are not traditionally embraced in

    of research

  • Explores research methodologies through the lens
    of reconciliation on a global scale

  • A unique text that utilizes reflections of individual
    contributors, emphasizing the narrative of each
