Vol 14 No 2 (2021)

This guest-edited volume of Gateways has power in engaged scholarship at its core. While considerable attention has been paid in the past to institutional questions, an under-theorized aspect of community-based research is the extent to which the positionality and interpersonal relationships between actors also impact the outcomes and sustainability of collaboration. The diverse authors featured in this volume critically and thoughtfully probe the ways in which institutional hierarchies, authority and control intersect with individual agency and community transformation. The result is a collection of nuanced and multi-vocal considerations of the hidden dynamics and complex relationships of university-community partnerships, as well as strategies for improved practice.
