Panel Discussion: Research on Street-Based Sex Work September 14th from 12:15-1:45
Please join us on September 14th from 12:15-1:45 as UMB SSW Associate Professor Corey Shdaimah will facilitate a conversation about research ethics on street-based sex work and with populations who themselves are generally excluded from weighing in on areas that impact them. The discussion will focus on the connection between research and policymaking and its potential for both benefit and harm, the appropriate role for researchers, students, and academics, and how to meaningfully include sex worker and activist voices in research. This discussion is relevant to research with other vulnerable populations and we will also discuss intersectionality as an important feature of research about street-based sex work. The panel discussion will be followed by an open Question and Answer session. Students and faculty are welcome. Panel members include Katie Hail-Jares, Post-Doctoral Fellow at Griffiths University (Australia) and former SWOP national board member; Jaqueline Robarge, Founder and Executive Director of Power Inside, Chrysanthi Leon, Associate Professor at the University of Delaware, and sex worker activists The event will be held in Room 001 of the Social Work/Law building. Katie Hail-Jares, Chrysanthi Leon, and Corey Shdaimah are editors of the recently published volume Challenging Perspectives on Street-Based Sex Work (Temple University Press).
