Beyond Inclusion: An Anti-Racist Pedagogy & Research Workshop for Graduate Students

About this Event

Event Description: 

From recent polemics regarding the use of the N-word in historical texts to the ubiquity of ‘polite racism’ across departments, many BIPOC grad students and scholars are directly responding through reconceptualizing mainstream teaching, research, and curatorial practices. In solidarity with recent exchanges on racial (in)justice in Canada, this workshop on Anti-Racist Pedagogy and Research will examine such issues and more.

This workshop is designed to share various methods and strategies to challenge normative models of diversity, representation, and inclusion in academic and cultural institutions. In a series of 3 panels of 2 respondents each, 6 BIPOC academics, community scholars, and museum professionals will reflect upon their work and experiences in confronting the legacies of white supremacy and systemic racism. Panelists will discuss their current research/activism as it advances the fostering of anti-racist approaches to institutional policies, community engagement, and the classroom. Furthermore, collectively the workshop will explore topics such as trigger/content warnings, navigating racist language/discourse, and decolonising syllabi/research/curation. 

Attendance for this event is open ONLY to graduate students, recent graduates, and junior/untenured faculty.

This is in order to encourage affinity and to foster a more practical dialogue. This workshop will take the form of an interactive conversation/skill share rather than a formal panel discussion. Event moderated by Gregorio Pablo Rodríguez-Arbolay (PhD Candidate, Humanities). Please email gem.lab.info@gmail.com for more information.
