Digital Community Engagement with Washington Park, Illinois 

Sponsored by IRIS Center 

Sociology and Environmental Science graduate students are working with Ms. Derissa Davis, an elementary teacher in the Village of Washington Park, to help materialize her vision of a community garden. Members of The Tiny Children’s Garden Team present a synopsis of their use of digital tools to practice applied sociology and to amplify the voices and desires of their collaboration partner and her community. The team will provide an overview of the digital pieces and outline their role in the collaboration, including how they contribute to shifting the dominant deficit-based narrative of the community to one that highlights the community’s rich cultural capital.

When: Friday, November 15, 2019 from 10:00 am- 10:30 am

Where: IRIS Center, Peck Hall, Room 2226

*Coffee and pastries will be served*
