Decolonizing the Classroom

submitted by

At this moment when racism and violence against communities of color is unapologetically visible, it is necessary to look at how academic institutions and our own practice may be perpetuating colonizing structures. This workshop on decolonizing pedagogies will feature shared vocabulary building, embodied practice, and small group discussions. Participants will leave with deepened understanding of colonial structures and how they manifest in our work in addition to strategies for decolonizing different aspects of our teaching.
Please join us on Tuesday, Oct 9th from 2:00-3:20 p.m. in the Studio Theatre in the Foss Building for what is sure to be a provocative discussion and workshop.
