Congratulations Dr. Pedelty!
Congratulations to Dr. Mark Pedelty, recipient of the 2023 University of Minnesota Community-Based Scholar Award.
Dr. Pedelty's work is grounded in community-based ethnographic research that empowers local communities through active participation in and co-creation of voices that are often marginalized and silenced. Dr. Pedelty’s work is best understood through the larger frame of community-based environmental activism. Mainly through collaborative music and film production, Dr. Pedelty has confronted some of the most difficult, urgent, and at times, violent issues of our times, including climate change, sound pollution, water crises, and urban alienation.
