AO. labor and historical relationships between communities and researchers

  • AO: The analysts mention the often-strained historical relationship between communities and research institutions (7) that thinking about refusal as a way of affirming and strengthening community values and knowledge might help with. They argue that refusal is a way to support the self-determination of communities who are not usually able to govern how they are represented in research and academia.

  • AO: The analysts interesting touch on the question of labor within the process noting that someone from the community should be hired (and paid) to do this work (9). However, they do not go into detail in terms of how to decide who to hire and what the possible risks of that might also be.

  • AO: Analysts note that it is important for researcher to “gain knowledge about community- institutional relationships that you, as a researcher, are already part of.” (9) due to historical context in a particular location.
