HASTAC 2017: The Possible Worlds of Digital Humanities is right around the corner and I am so excited to be chairing the panel, “Building a Feminist Future: On (Digital) Pedagogical Praxis” (Friday, November 3, 1:45 PM – 3:15 PM in CB1-105; Session Number: FSA01).
Organized and facilitated by Emily Esten, Melissa Meade, Danica Savonick, Whitney Sperrazza, and Heather Suzanne Woods this session will be interactive–not your regular conference panel–and depend heavily on audience engagement. We will work together to explore what a feminist classroom looks and feels like and discuss strategies that you can integrate into your everyday teaching practices. The goal is to crowd-source a range of methods and resources that will be made available to all educators committed to feminist and antiracist pedagogy. Needless to say, this panel speaks to the Futures Initiative and HASTAC‘s emphasis on higher education as a public good.
Come prepared to take an active role in the discussion! We will be drawing, preforming listening dyads, and gathering in breakout sessions to discuss timely topics from online teaching and making groupwork work to teaching to transgress in difficult times. Hope to see you all there! #hastac17 #femprax
