When My Reflection Looks Back at Me: Race, Gender, and Literacy in Community-Engaged Scholarship

Campus Center Room 165
6:00pm

In this talk, Dr. Haddix will share her journey as a community engaged scholar whose work is deeply informed by her intersecting identities of being a Black woman, mother, daughter, sister, teacher, and researcher. She will describe theoretical and methodological moves from the beginning and throughout her research inquiries, highlighting examples from her work with urban youth in the Writing Our Lives project, with Black adolescent girls in the Dark Girls Celebration of Black Girlhood project, and with students of color in teacher preparation programs. Her talk will emphasize the kinds of theoretical and methodological approaches generated and required when working with/in one's own community and with activist aims.

This event is free and open to the public.

Location: Campus Center Room 165

The City of Tomorrow

Bezanson Recital Hall | Fine Arts Center
8:15pm

The City of Tomorrow is a woodwind quintet with an unusual approach to performances, where contemporary classical music, experimental music, environmentalism, and humanism converge.  The quintet makes music to give voice to the emotions of people confronting contemporary issues, providing an outlet for our reactions to environmental destruction and endless war, the pixelization of our memories, and the overwhelming mass of information collected on humanity daily.  Forging a new identity for the wind quintet in the same way that the Kronos Quartet did for strings, the City of Tomorrow commissions new works, seeks relevancy for 20th century compositions, and continues to shatter expectations for a concert of wind chamber music.

The event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.

Location: Bezanson Recital Hall | Fine Arts Center
