Imperialist Methodologies: Evaluation in Donor-Driven Projects
Start Date: 2/17/2021Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 2/17/2021End Time: 1:00 PM
Event Description
Using critical auto-ethnographic data, Dr. Bjorn Nordtveit presents research methodologies and evaluation strategies related to donor-driven international, longitudinal research projects with multi-member teams. Drawing on three projects on girls and women’s education in contexts of extreme adversity – two projects in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and one in Senegal – using both qualitative and quantitative data, this presentation presents challenges and opportunities for overcoming “imperialism” in donor-driven education research. Dr. Nordtveit’s work is based on an understanding of research presented in Denzin and Salvo’s (eds., 2020) New Directions in Theorizing Qualitative Research (4 volumes), as well as the Handbook of Critical and Indigenous Methodologies (Denzin, Lincoln and Tuhiwai Smith, eds., 2008) and in Linda Tuhiwai Smith’s Decolonizing Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoples (2nd edition, 2012).

Dr. Bjorn Nordtveit is an Associate Professor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst since 2011, after serving for five years as Research Assistant Professor at the University of Hong Kong.
