Director Vivek Venkatesh discusses socially-engaged research Concordia’s 4th Space

CSLP director Vivek Venkatesh recently participated in a roundtable discussion at Concordia’s 4th Space on the “blurry lines” of conducting socially-engaged research. Organized by Geneviève Grégoire-Labrecque as part of her week-long residency as a 2021/22 Public Scholar, Venkatesh joined the latter, alongside Jennifer Danquah and Kathleen Manion, to unpack the “roles, privileges, boundaries, benefits, dilemmas and challenges of being an ‘engaged’ scholar”––that is, a scholar that aims to advance social justice through their work.
