Transitions and Transactions IV: Literature Pedagogies and Social Justice in Community Colleges

April 20
199 Chambers St., Richard Harris Terrace

How do we welcome community college students to the study of literature and social justice? How do we make dialogue, exchange and debate possible in our classrooms welcoming everyone’s participation and engagement, especially at a time when some voices/people are treated as invisible?

In this climate, how we continue to develop as teachers and learners will profoundly shape who we will become inside and often outside the classroom. Transitions and Transactions IV invites teachers to think about the pressing issues of our particular historical moment.
