Research for Change versus Research as Change: Lessons from a Mujerista Participatory Research Team Journal Article uri icon



  • In this article, I aim to further the discussion of engaged research in anthropology and education by examining the unique changes promoted by participatory research in contrast to policy‐oriented activist research models. Drawing on my work with Latina immigrant mothers in a school reform movement, I argue for a Latina feminist view of participatory research that illuminates and builds on Latina women's capacities for social critique and transformative resistance. [participatory research, activist anthropology, Latino parents, school reform]
