Please RSVP here.

This particular workshop will examine the question: What challenges arise in doing research with vulnerable populations? How can research participants be represented in ways that both reflect their full humanity and their multiple positionalities? 


Dr. Bianca Baldridge is an Assistant Professor in the department of Educational Policy Studies at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She earned her PhD from Columbia University’s Teachers College. Her recent book, with Stanford University Press, Reclaiming Community: Race and the Uncertain Future of Youth Work, examines how market-based reforms and whiteness, with its emphasis on privatization and accountability undermines Black community-based organizations’ efforts to support comprehensive youth development opportunities. As a National Academy of Education/Spencer Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow, Dr. Baldridge’s current research studies how racial discourse shapes community-based spaces that engage Black youth in predominantly white cities that espouse a liberal and progressive ethos.
