Crossroads: Critical Issues in Community-Based Research Partnerships.
Hartford, CT (2004)
This 4-day conference drew representatives from community-based organizations, government agencies, independent research organizations, universities and colleges, service agencies, public policy advocates, foundations, artists, and community residents interested in looking critically at the ways in which research is and can be used to create change in communities worldwide. We welcomed researchers, community activists, artists, and students from all settings to present current work, reflections or critical analysis of community-based collaborative research (CBCR) projects, and individuals who wanted to gain or share methods and skills in the practice of CBCR. Teams of researchers and community partners were encouraged to come to the conference together to represent their collaborative projects.
