Faculty in Conversation Series: Teaching the Fragments -- Shared Learning as Antiracist and Decolonial Practice with Willie Jennings

Event Description 

The Faculty in Conversation Series: Antiracist Pedagogy series 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 of Chapter 1 of his book, After Whiteness: An Education in Belonging, which is an exploration of the fragments of colonization that have shattered our worlds. Jennings will facilitate a discussion of the question: How might an instructor decolonize the syllabus and the hierarchies of a discipline to ensure student belonging? Participants will have opportunities to ask questions and reflect on how the practices translate to their classrooms. This lunchtime event is currently limited to 20 participants due to Yale capacity guidelines; all participants will receive a copy of Jennings’ book ahead of time.. . — Event Details: https://yaleconnect.yale.edu/rsvp?id=1154727
