This panel discussion explores tensions and opportunities when communities and university-based researchers collaborate. Based on a decade-long collaboration between Queen Quet, the Chieftess and Head of State of the Gullah/Geechee Nation and Kate Derickson, faculty member in Geography, Environment and Society, the panel will include a discussion of the model for effective collaboration and communication, strategies for including students in engaged research, and tools and techniques that have been useful throughout. We will also explore the complex historic relationship between Gullah/Geechee Nation and the University of Minnesota and how that conditions the ethical terrain of collaboration.
