Sprague Library co-sponsored the November 12th, 2020 virtual conference titled “Black Lives Matter in Research“. This inaugural one day event brought together a community of researchers and ethics professionals into the discussion of Black Lives Matter and its intersectionality with research design and research methodologies. The conference was attended by approximately 250 attendees from 115 different institutions. The majority of attendees were from the U.S.; we also had attendees from Canada, Chile, India, Nigeria, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
The presentations by the two keynote speakers — Doctors Monique Guishard (CUNY Bronx Community College) and Jason Williams (Montclair State University) have been posted along with a video recording from the event in the MSU Digital Commons. The recording of the panel discussion will be posted at a later date.
