ANTH 454 - Participatory Action Research Methods

Participatory Action Research is a methodology of researching, analyzing, and carrying out actions that directly benefit members (stakeholders) of a community. As a form of applied anthropology, PAR is a method that emphasizes working in collaboration with others to develop research questions, conduct research, analyze findings, present results, and create actions. In this course, graduate students will work with an identified community group (in most cases, one with which the student already has a great familiarity through participant-observation fieldwork methods in ANTH 471) to work on a PAR project.
