Abstract

In this presentation, the authors draw upon the Model of Occupational Justice (Townsend and Wilcock, 2003) to analyze the impact of contemporary coal mining on human occupations. Their study is part of a Participatory Action Research project entitles The Headwaters Project that was conducted collaboratively with a geographer, a sociologist, and a rural mountain county in Appalachia. The research methods used in the three phases of the larger study will be shared. The emphasis will be on the benefit of collaborating with citizens in an Appalachian community and with other researchers in an interdisciplinary approach that strengthens the entire project. Examples of occupational injustice will be highlighted to demonstrate the application of the Model of Occupational Justice in present day Appalachia.
