How Do We Talk About Colonial Violence in the Classroom?

Tuesday, September 28, 2021 | 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
The registration period has closed for this event.

Leading up to the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation (September 30th), this session will consider the responsibilities of non-Indigenous instructors, and strategies for talking about colonial violence in the classroom. Centering Dr. Shaista Patel’s 2021 article “Talking complicity, breathing coloniality: Interrogating settler-centric pedagogy of teaching about white settler colonialism” in the Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, we will talk about ways to interrupt the reproduction of harm and settler apathy.


Registration open through Tuesday, September 28, 2021
