This particular workshop will examine the question: What challenges arise in doing research with vulnerable populations? How can research participants be represented in ways that both reflect their full humanity and their multiple positionalities? 


Dr. Bianca Baldridge is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Management Sciences and Engineering at Stanford University. She earned her PhD from Columbia University’s Teachers College. Her scholarship examines the political and social context of community-based educational spaces and afterschool education. Dr. Baldridge’s work critically examines the confluence of race, class, and gender, and its impact on neoliberal economic and educational reforms that shape community-based educational spaces engaging Black youth in marginalized communities. Further, Dr. Baldridge’s scholarship explores the organizational and pedagogical practices employed by youth workers/community-based educators and their connection to school spaces amidst neoliberal education restructuring. Dr. Baldridge’s experiences as an educator within community-based youth programs continues to inform her research in profound ways.
