Keywords:social work research, Tribal/Adivasi areas, Tribal/Adivasi lens, knowledge and society, academic space, contextualization
This paper attempts to engage with social work research through the tribal/adivasi people's lens. Based on the author’s engagement in teaching and doing research in relation to Tribal/Adivasi communities of India, the paper explores the possibility of building a frame of reference for research engagement suited to the context. It demonstrates how the scheduled/tribal areas represent one particular location of a context-based research. To this end, the author, through observations drawn from academic engagement, throws some light on contextualization of social research in relation to tribal/adivasi areas.
