Engaging Community: Exploring the African-Canadian Experience through Dialogue and Script Writing
Kelly, Jennifer R.
Canadian Journal of University Continuing Education, v36 n2 Fall 2010
This paper aims to contribute to our understanding of how researchers and adult and continuing education scholars can work collectively with communities of adults. It illustrates the links between theory and practice in community-university engagement. The paper expands our understanding of the ways in which research data and arts-based activities can be used as the basis of knowledge generation when working with adults in communities. In particular the paper examines the process of producing a play script based on data generated through oral history interviews undertaken with people from the Caribbean who came to Alberta in the 1960s to early 1970s. This process resulted in unearthing of new knowledge, insights, and understandings within African-Canadian communities in Alberta. (Contains 1 endnote.)
