Building Engaged Scholarship in Canada: Introducing the First Issue of the Engaged Scholar Journal

  • Natalia Khanenko-Friesen
Keywords: Canadian engaged scholarship, community-based scholars, community-university partnerships

Abstract

The submissions profiled in our inaugural issue represent the diversity of scholarly engagement in Canada as evidenced in the titles and abstracts of the essays. Our authors come from the health sciences, the arts, sociology, education, linguistics, policy studies, business, women and gender studies, psychology, biodiversity and environmental studies, and other scholarly areas. They speak about their work conducted in Canada and abroad, with various social groups, ethnic and indigenous communities. Most of them are university-based researchers; others are community-based co-authors while some are students, and yet others are firmly positioned in both academic and community worlds. All are united by their commitment to real community-driven partnerships and engaged scholarship
