Title: Leading University-Community Engagement: Female Leaders, Disruption and Resilience
Stream: Higher Education
Presentation Type: Oral Presentation
Katy Campbell, University of Alberta, Canada
David Peacock, University of Alberta, Canada
This presentation explores the social identities and social change agency of fourteen female leaders of institutionalized university-community engagement in Canada, the U.S., the U.K. and Australia, from the multi-year study "Institutionalizing University-Community Engagement: Sociocultural Contexts". Using a feminist narrative approach we explored the disorienting dilemmas and identity jolts related to women's participation in institutional leadership of social justice. Themes of disruption, resistance and resilience to neoliberal institutional cultures and practices in which university-community engagement is situated will be shared through participants' stories of praxis. Participants are invited to share their own narratives of leadership, disruption, and identity transformation.
