Workshop: Teaching for Racial Justice with Pre-1900 Literatures (Inclusive Pedagogy)

March 28, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Facilitators: Maxwell Gray & Guest Scholar Professor Nahir Otaño Gracia
Location: Multicultural Student Center Classroom, Red Gym (2nd floor)

Professor Nahir Otaño Gracia (Beloit College) will join us for an informal conversation about teaching for racial justice in fields of pre-1900 literary study in which scholars of color, writers of color, and critical race theory have been especially marginalized. Topics to be discussed may include the work of the Medievalists of Color, #ShakeRace, #POC18, Bigger 6 Romanticism, the V21 Collective, and #POC19. This lunch event should be of particular interest to Medievalists, Early Modernists, Eighteenth Centuryists, Romanticists, Victorianists, and Early Americanists, although everyone is welcome, and can accommodate up to 12 participants. RSVP required.
