Regional Approaches to Community-engaged Research, a Surrey Case Study

Resource type
Date created
Author: Chandi, Aman
This session marks one step towards challenging and dismantling the sometimes problematic centrality of large urban centres in community engaged research. With a focus on the geo-political context of Surrey, BC and the people living and working in it, this session will surface some of the regional considerations part of ethical community engaged research (CER).

The session invites audience members to bring reflections and questions from their own regional research contexts to explore with each other and with the speakers, mapped onto Surrey as a backdrop and case study. This session is the final installment in SFU CERi’s Remaking the Table monthly webinar series exploring challenges in and horizons for community engaged research.

The speakers are Alicia Massie, Aman Chandi and Jasmeen Virk.

Alicia Massie is a Joseph Armand Bombardier Doctoral Scholar, Progressive Economics Fellow, and PhD Candidate at the School of Communication at Simon Fraser University. Beyond her academic work she works as an educator, labour organizer, and community activist. Her activism and academic work focus on the intersections of gender, labour, and race in late capitalism, as well as investigating Canadian petro-capitalism from a socialist feminist perspective.

Aman Chandi is a visual designer and community-engaged researcher currently pursuing a MA in Urban Studies at SFU. For my thesis, I am collaborating with several grassroots communities in Newton, Surrey and my research interests are artist-activism, informal urbanism and safety.
