“Critical Listening and Storying: Sustaining Relationships Within and Beyond Research,” presented by Timothy San Pedro.

Relying on intersections of humanizing research and indigenous research methodologies, San Pedro discusses the importance of centering relationships through critical listening and storying. Doing so provides greater opportunities to co-construct shared truths and realities in our pluralistic society. This work is framed as Projects in Humanization, which attempts to remove the often times dehumanizing “slash” between researcher/participant and into more productive spaces where collective desires for educational, political, and social change may be forged because they come from places of mutual respect, reciprocity, and answerability.
