Are My Politics Showing: Teaching Multiple Perspectives
Women and Gender Studies
Brooks College of Interdisciplinary Studies
Do your biases show when you teach? Should you use your identity in the classroom? How do students' identities affect their learning? Building upon the conference subtheme "Outsider Feminisms," this workshop considers how to engage diverse perspectives in the Women and Gender Studies (WGST) classroom and how to use or not use identity when teaching contested WGST topics among differently positioned WGST and non-WGST learners.
