2019-20 RJI Scholars Program
Applications deadline: February 28, 2019
Liberating knowledge requires that we rethink and jettison some core practices and beliefs that are central to how research is usually carried out, even in progressive disciplines. Research justice offers an exciting opportunity to do just that by developing research praxis driven by those who are most affected by the phenomena we investigate.
Julia Chinyere Oparah, Provost and Dean of the Faculty,
RJI Director and Professor of Ethnic Studies
Research Justice at the Intersections (RJI) is an interdisciplinary research group that fosters social justice-oriented research and groundbreaking critical analysis.
