Teaching Gender, Race, and Citizenship in the Time of Trump

January 30, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The rhetoric of Donald Trump and his supporters draws sharp divisions between included and excluded subjects based on features of identity that are central analytic categories for many of us in our teaching and research: gender, race, citizen status, and religious affiliation.  How does, or should, this new cultural context affect our teaching? What challenges and what opportunities does it present? This workshop, specifically for instructors at all ranks who teach in these areas, will kick off with three brief presentations, and the floor will then be open for us all to share experiences.  Feel free to bring an anecdote, question, or strategy to contribute to discussion. Panelists include Moya Bailey (Cultures, Societies, & Global Studies and Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies), Chris Chambers (Sociology), and Rachel Rosenbloom (School of Law). The discussion will be moderated by Professor Laura Gree. Lunch will be served. Please RSVP to Ignacio Chaparro (wgss@northeastern.edu) by January 25.
