Black and Indigenous Alliances: Reconfiguring Education for otherwise futures
1 December 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Faculty of Education’s Anti-Black Racism Committee (ABRC) invites you to this webinar, where panelists will create a space of inquiry and engagement through dialogue as they consider questions such as:
- How might we think about education as a site that cultivates conditions for structural transformation and not just a place for the socialization and enculturation of young people?
- What historical alliances can we take up in order to enact these changes?
- Why and how could Black and Indigenous Peoples and their allies challenge systemic racist practices and institutions?
- How do or do not these challenges differ pedagogically from the ‘multicultural’ ethos that dominates teaching and learning?
With this webinar the ABRC wishes to create a space for dialogical and listening practices that can be difficult. These are generative and necessary as imagining Otherwise Futures means undoing white supremacy and its ontological-epistemological logics.
