SZB 2.624 (Parker Conference Room) or Zoom
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm (CST)

The Texas Center for Equity Promotion (TexCEP) has begun a series of Centering Equity workshops focused on important and relevant topics around health and education.

This semester, TexCEP launched three consecutive workshops focused on race and ethnicity in equity-based research, titled Decoding Race & Ethnicity in Your Scholarship.

The second workshop in this series, Where is the “I” in Research?, will be held on Wednesday, April 27 from 12 – 1:30 p.m., moderated by Distinguished Teaching Professor Dr. Keffrelyn Brown

Key Topics Include:

  • What role do you understand researcher identity to play in research?
  • Given the challenges and limitations of the conceptualization and measurement of race/ethnicity, how do I think about my own racial/ethnic identity and how does that impact my work?
  • How does my own racial/ethnic identity interact with my own research interests and the community with which I work?
  • What are some of the opportunities and challenges that come along when our personal identities align with communities with which we work?
  • How do my own identity, positionality and power impact how I work as a researcher? For example: What does it mean to be a white male in the context of the communities in which we work?
  • How do you account for the influence of your identity in the context of your research?

Complimentary boxed lunch for in-person guests.

Registration is required for both the in-person and Zoom options. These TexCEP workshops are open to all UT Austin students, faculty, staff and members of the community.
