Shared Space, Liminal Space: Five Years into a Community-University Place-Based Experiment
Barajas, Heidi Lasley; Martin, Lauren
Metropolitan Universities, v27 n3 p47-66 Aut 2016
This article explores shared space at the University of Minnesota's Robert J. Jones Urban Research and Outreach Engagement Center (UROC), located four miles off campus in a community strong in assets, but facing inequality, disinvestment and racism. UROC's mission promotes university-community collaboration to solve critical urban challenges. We learned this requires more than just a physical space. Trust and connection requires tending to epistemological space--liminality between the university and community--to foster transformational scholarship.
