Positionality/Diversity Statements

Since HSRC 2023, we now ask all presenters to upload a statement of positionality with their proposal. The purpose of this statement is to clearly explain and allow for reflection on your own identities and how they may have influenced your research. Statements of positionality can be lengthy, but to meet the requirements of this proposal, three to five sentences will suffice. 

For six examples of positionality statements, scroll to the end of this document on positionality statements Links to an external site. compiled by the editors of JSPR and PR. Another example journal article and positionality statement from Dr. Walt Heinecke is included below.
