Keynote Address - Society for Cross-Cultural Research
I was invited by the Society for Cross-Cultural Research to give a keynote address during its next annual meeting, which is held in Seattle from February 26 to February 29, 2020. The title of my address is Embedding Cross-Cultural Research: Driven by Values, Rooted in Relationships, and Focused on Action. In this address, I argue that when researcher adopt liberation theology's "accompaniment" as an overarching conceptual framework for their scholarly engagement with communities, they place themselves into the lives and struggles of communities and develop interpersonal and reciprocal relationships with them that result in knowledge that inspires transformative action. The abstract of my address as well as of the other keynote addresses are available online.
