Join us for “Feminist Pedagogies in Difficult National Moments,” a timely discussion between graduate students, staff, and faculty seeking creative, strategic, and sustainable ways to address difficult conversations currently taking place in our classrooms.

During this extended moment of racial violence, xenophobia, and divisive election politics, what kinds of feminist approaches might we practice? Given the context of race politics in the wake of Black Lives Matter, and an intensifying climate around immigration and queerness, how can we facilitate meaningful dialogue?

Join us for a brief panel and a discussion about how these politics affect pedagogy, the questions and concerns that are coming to the surface, and the tools we are using to navigate them.

This event is sponsored by the W.E.B. Du Bois Center, Department of Women, Gender, Sexuality Studies, Anthropology Department, College of Humanities and Fine Arts and the Office of the Chancellor.

Refreshments and snacks will be served. This event is open to the public, but attendees are asked to RSVP.
