Faculty In Conversation: Antiracist Pedagogy Series with Willie Jennings

Event Description 

The Faculty in Conversation Series: Antiracist Pedagogy brings together faculty to listen, reflect, and exchange ideas. Each session features a Yale instructor who incorporates antiracist practices into their teaching and whose work is highlighted on the Poorvu Center antiracist pedagogy webpage. Associate Professor in the Yale Divinity School, Willie Jennings will engage participants in a discussion over lunch at the Poorvu Center of his book, After Whiteness: An Education in Belonging. Participants will have opportunities to ask questions and reflect on how the practices translate to their own classrooms. All participants who register by February 15 will receive a copy of Jennings’ book ahead of time. This session will be limited to 30 participants to ensure an opportunity for all instructors to engage in the discussion. We are committed to hosting inclusive and accessible events that allow all participants to fully engage. Please contact us at faculty.teaching@yale.edu if there are ways we can support accommodations, for questions about inclusion, and/or dietary restrictions for the lunchtime meal.. . — Event Details: https://yaleconnect.yale.edu/rsvp?id=1970184
