This particular workshop will examine the question: How does being or not being a member of "the community" you are researching (while affiliated with a university) affect positionality and research approaches?


Dr. Carolina Prado has worked at the intersection of community based research, environmental justice, and border studies for the last seven years. As a first generation queer Chicana, she believes that her struggles for social and environmental justice should create an impact on both sides of the border. Her current work is using environmental justice mapping indices in the U.S. as a guide to create a spatial analysis of environmental inequality in the border city of Tijuana, México. She is also passionate about food justice and anti-domestic violence work. Dr. Prado currently works as an Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental Studies at San Jose State University.
