SSHRC Partnership Development Grant ($199,917.00) 2016-2018: Connecting culture and childhood: implications of the repatriation of archival recordings for children and young people. Partners: Makerere University (Uganda), Memorial University (Canada), Rhodes University (South Africa), University of Melbourne (Australia), University of Alberta (Canada), University of Washington (USA), University of Venda (South Africa), University of Arizona (USA).

The Connecting Culture and Childhood project is a two-year research project that leverages a cross-cultural partnership between archives, academic institutions, researchers, and communities, to investigate the implications of the repatriation of archival recordings for children and young people. The partnership between organizations and co-applicants, collaborators, youth, students, and community elders/researchers at each site (Australia, Canada, South Africa, Uganda, USA) fosters a common mandate of engaging in socially responsible research for developing and mobilizing knowledge for community benefit.
