Velma E. Schmidt Lectures on Social Justice and Critical Qualitative Inquiry

Featuring Patricia Lather, Ohio State University and Elizabeth St. Pierre, University of Georgia

Twenty years ago, former University of North Texas faculty member, scholar and childhood educator, Velma E. Schmidt left her estate to the institution to establish the first endowed chair position at the university. Over the years, this endowment has facilitated a range of projects in higher education, community well-being, and scholarly research. Focusing on the complex social, cultural and global conditions in which we are all now embedded, the current series of Velma E. Schmidt lectures is constructed to further our reconceptualizations of research in ways that reveal, and attempt to resolve, social justice issues while crossing academic and disciplinary boundaries.
