Teaching as Social Justice Twitter Chat with moderator Simone Browne

#teach4justice | #fight4edu

Join us in a twitter chat about "Teaching as Social Justice": how teaching can address the unequal distribution of resources, wealth, privilege, and opportunity along axes of race, gender, sexual orientation, and ability. The twitter chat will be moderated by Simone Browne, Associate Professor of African and African Diaspora Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. We will be using both the hashtags #teach4justice and #fight4edu, so that we can continue the conversation along with the livestream workshop  “Teaching As Social Justice” starting at 1:00 pm EDT, with Ruth Wilson Gilmore, Director of the Center for Place, Culture, and Politics and Professor of Geography and Earth and Environmental Sciences at The Graduate Center, CUNY; Anne Balsamo, Dean of the School of Media Studies and Professor of Media Studies at the New School, and co-founder of FemTechNet; and Prithi Kanakamedala, Assistant Professor of History at Bronx Community College who works on public history projects related to Brooklyn's history of abolitionism and anti-slavery activism.
