Community-Engaged Northern Research Course

Each year Gita Ljubicic offers a graduate course at McMaster on Community-Engaged Northern Research (GEOG 715). This is a facilitated reading course supported by regular in-person meetings (via Zoom). It runs over the winter and spring terms (Jan – June) with bi-weekly meetings to be confirmed according to student and instructor schedules.

This course serves as an introduction to approaches and methods in community-engaged research. In particular, this course aims to support graduate students who are preparing to work with northern Indigenous communities as part of their thesis research. We explore important historical, cultural, conceptual, and methodological context to provide students a foundation to begin developing their approach to undertaking community-engaged research.

Please contact if you have any questions, or for permission to register (max 6 students, priority given to McMaster graduate students, but it open to Master’s or PhD students at other universities).

Alternative formats and timelines of this course can also be tailored to meet individual or small group needs through focused meetings or workshops. Contact Gita if this is more appropriate for your needs.
