A learning community of diverse community engagement stakeholders will explore Dr. Miranda Fricker’s (2007) philosophical framework of epistemic justice/injustice through the lens of lived experience and contemporary scholarship, and discuss implications for transforming community-engaged work. This session builds on conversations from a preconference at the July 2018 IARSLCE Conference, and integrates a dynamic body of resources and discourses curated by facilitators for participants to apply in their professional contexts. The purpose is to integrate epistemic justice as a framework for the community engagement field to achieve just, inclusive, equitable social transformation Primary outcomes are: Build knowledge of epistemic justice/injustice as a philosophical framework Analyze how epistemic injustice shapes community engagement Develop action plan for disrupting epistemic injustice Participants will learn about the defining elements of epistemic justice/injustice, discover the potential epistemic and ethical repercussions of injustice for individuals and community through participation in a story circle, and discuss how to promote epistemic justice in community engagement endeavors in areas of examination that emerge from common themes in our shared stories. We aim to foster ongoing dialogue that will produce insights, interventions, and strategies for participants to use in their respective contexts to promote a culture and practice of epistemic justice.
