Course description

Knowledge and Democracy: New Perspectives on Communities and Universities Co-Creating Knowledge

Budd Hall, PhD, School of Public Administration, UVic

Friday, January 13: 12:30 to 1:45 pm

Do universities have a monopoly on the creation of knowledge? What kinds of knowledge do you have that academics do not have? What is meant by different knowledge systems? Can a knowledge system die or even be killed? What would it look like if academics and community groups or organisations created knowledge together? These are some of the questions that Budd Hall will talk about in his Dean’s Lecture. Budd is the co-holder of the UNESCO Chair in Community-Based Research and Social Responsibility in Higher Education. He has been working for more than 40 years on questions of how knowledge is created, whose knowledge counts, how certain knowledge systems have gained a dominant position in our universities and what is changing to give the idea of knowledge democracy some important meaning. Victoria and the University of Victoria have become known as one of the places in the world where ideas like community based research and community engaged research are more extensively practiced. Learn more about how new forms of research partnerships are being brought to bear on the critical issues facing our community and our world.
