Tuesday, March 5 12:45 PM - 2:30 PM

On-Campus Event - — CO 312- Hybrid Panel

graduate students in classroom

Zoom link

Through PAR we have co created graduate courses and community spaces that center critical theories and liberatory practices, believing “The classroom remains the most radical space of possibility in the academy” This panel reflects our journey as qualitative researchers who identify as critical feminists and have completed research on their own professional experiences as women educators in very different contexts. Using their graduate school coursework to develop deeper understanding of critical theories, intersectionality and oppressive educational systems these graduate students worked with their professor and department chair to disrupt hegemonic practices and co create non traditional learning spaces and research that center BIPOC women and those who identify as queer and non binary. 

After a brief introduction when the participants will share their journeys as critical feminist scholars, researchers, practitioners we will offer a workshop style space to share our research ideas and experiences.  Creating spaces that center and uplift women and girls at the intersection of race, class, gender, and culture.’
