Hughes Lounge (3rd Floor of Cohen Hall)

Please join us on Tuesday, November 19, at 3:30 PM in the Hughes Lounge (3rd Floor of Cohen Hall) for a discussion on what it means to decolonize a syllabus, a classroom or a curriculum. The session will be led by Sebastián Gil-Riaño, who will be talking to us about his experience with decolonial methods and pedagogy. As a starting point for the discussion we will be reading the widely cited paper by Eve Tuck and K. Wayne Yang, "Decolonization is Not a Metaphor" (2012). 

This is the first part of a Science Beyond the West - Center for Teaching and Learning collaboration on decolonial pedagogies. In Spring 2020 there will be a follow up with Alexis Rider leading a session on how to put these ideas into practice.
