For many years, discussions have taken place between academics and community leaders on the ethics of research in racialized and Indigenous communities. Racialized researchers have faced marginalization and have often been tokenized or treated as "native informants" in collaborative research, rather than scholars in their own right. Those outside the community have claimed information provided by community knowledge keepers as their “discovery” with no credit given to independent scholars and storytellers. A dynamic group of panelists will discuss the ethics of research in Asian communities, with a focus on, but not limited to Japanese Canadians. Participants include prominent Japanese Canadian scholars, junior Japanese Canadian researchers, and one of the country’s most dynamic leaders in Asian Canadian Studies. The discussion will begin with a keynote presentation by Dr. Margaret Kovach, an influential and highly regarded Indigenous scholar who has written extensively on the topic of Indigenous Research Methodologies.
