Call for research assistants

Call for applications: Building Transformative Justice at Tufts Research Grant Funded by the Center for Humanities at Tufts

Brief description of project: Building Transformative Justice at Tufts is a multi-year research and teaching project led by Tufts faculty Dr. Daanika Gordon and Dr. Lilian Mengesha. The project is focused on researching methods of repair, harm reduction and justice for historically oppressed and minoritized groups within the settler-colonial nation that is the United States.

The goal of this project is to develop a pilot Transformative Justice program at Tufts by 2023. We envision a three phased process of research and teaching that would culminate in a co-taught undergraduate course in AY 2021-2022, and a university supported program the following year.
