ISSR's Research in Process Qualitative Discussion Series presents "Research Collaborations with Native Communities: New Directions in Social Science Ethics" with Sonya Atalay, Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Lisa Wexler, Assistant Professor of Public Health. Some of the most innovative experiments in participatory and collaborative research have occurred in Native, First Nations, Maori, and Aboriginal contexts. The panelists will lead a discussion on these innovations drawing on their own experiences working as a tribal research partner with Alaskan Natives on resilience and suicide prevention (Lisa Wexler), and using community based participatory research as an approach in archaeology in the Near East and North America (Atalay).  All are welcome; refreshments will be served.
