Research at Queen's

At Queen’s, a number of groups and individuals (both Indigenous and non-Indigenous) consider Indigenous histories, rights, perspectives, and culture. Faculty members who specialize in these areas come from a range of disciplines and many conduct community-based, participatory research. The list of faculty members below is not exhaustive.


 

Research Collaboration with Indigenous Communities: Negotiating Ownership and Control in Collaborative Research

This day-long workshop for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and community members focused on the broad theme of negotiating issues of ownership and control of research data and information, including cultural knowledge, in university-community research partnerships. The event was designed as a hands-on, foundational training and community-building activity in which participants learn from the insights of experienced researchers, Indigenous leaders, and community members about best practices in the ethical and responsible conduct of Indigenous research. This event was co-organized by the Aboriginal Council of Queen’s University, the School of Graduate Studies, and Four Directions Indigenous Student Centre (FDISC). Another workshop is anticipated for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Planning with Indigenous Peoples (PWIP) Research Group

The Planning With Indigenous Peoples (PWIP) Research Group at Queen’s University is dedicated to conducting research about policy and planning with First Nations. Their objective is to enhance Indigenous-municipal relationships in the context of land use planning in the cities and regions encompassing First Nations’ lands in Southern Ontario.
