Response to the Chauvin Verdict Teach-in - Undoing Racism and Invisibility: Decolonizing Pedagogy and University Systems
An interdisciplinary discussion on decolonizing pedagogy, understanding the question of race beyond the US context, and working to address university systems and processes that are subtly hostile to BIPOC students. Case studies of decolonizing (from inside and outside TNS) will be offered, as well as discussions related to not only attracting, but retaining a diverse student body that can flourish in higher education. Includes student contributions and perspectives.
Speakers include Dr. Lei Ping, Assistant Professor of China Studies and co-Chair of Faculty Council at the Schools of Public Engagement; Dr. Pani Farvid, Assistant Professor of Applied Psychology, Chair of BPATS Psychology and co-Chair of Faculty Council at the Schools of Public Engagement; and Laura Cronk, Assistant Professor of Writing & Chair of the Undergraduate Creative Writing Program at the Schools of Public Engagement.
