How I Write: A Conversation with Dr. Tania Mitchell for Black Women Scholars

May 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

[Virtual – for North Carolina institutions only]

Are you a Black woman scholar involved in community engaged research? Are you teaching an engaged pedagogy such as service-learning, community-based research, or participatory action research and working to advance your scholarship? Do you view your scholarship as for the public good? Would you like to connect with other community engaged scholars in our state?

Please join us for a conversation with internationally recognized community engagement and higher education scholar Dr. Tania Mitchell about how she writes, what motivates her work, and the importance of community engaged scholarship in higher education. Dr. Mitchell’s research and teaching promote both social equity and social change in community engagement. Dr. Mitchell will discuss the challenges and opportunities of publishing as an engaged scholar, the need for more research that contributes to positive community change, and how she aligns research, teaching, and service as an engaged scholar. Her scholarship has been published in numerous books and journals, and her edited collections include Educating for Citizenship and Social Justice: Practices for Community Engagement at Research Universities (Palgrave MacMillan, 2018) and Black Women and Social Justice Education: Legacies and Lessons (SUNY Press, 2019).

If you would like to attend, please register here. A Zoom link will be provided a few days before the conversation. Sponsored by North Carolina Campus Compact and the Duke Faculty Write Program.
