The Institute for Community Research (ICR) in Hartford, CT is 
sponsoring "Crossroads: Critical Issues in Community-Based 
Research", a national conference that will critically explore issues 
related to community-based research partnerships, methodology, and 
methods of dissemination. The conference will take place June 10-13, 
2004 in Hartford, CT.  

ICR is currently accepting applications for workshop and panel 
discussion proposals that address how class, ethnicity, race, gender, 
culture and power impact research partnerships; gaps between 
communities and the institutions that serve them (e.g., schools, clinics, 
after-school programs, political representatives); and ways that 
participatory or collaborative research partnerships can remedy these 
and other cultural, health, environmental and economic policy oriented 

Recognizing that community-based collaborative research (CBCR) is a 
growing field, the conference is aimed at developing a critical analysis 
of current approaches which move us to the next level in improving our 
relationships and methods. The conference will explore and critique 
core dimensions of CBCR in the following areas: Theory, Ethics, 
Methods, Skills, Use of Research Results and Topical Issues. (See
