Teaching #BlackLivesMatter: Countering the Pedagogies of Anti-Black Racism

Teaching #BlackLivesMatter: Countering the Pedagogies of Anti-Black Racism 

Friday, December 19 10:00-12:00 in the Skylight Conference Room at The Graduate Center, CUNY

Co-sponsored by Revolutionizing American Studies & the Advanced Research Collaborative

An event where we can think through how to address racialization and state power as scholar-teachers, working at the level of both immediately executable plans for teaching/research, and longer term strategies for making the academy accountable to racial violence.

On social media, #BlackLivesMatter mobilized critiques against the grand jury decisions not to indict officers Darrell Wilson and Daniel Pantaleo. Rallying around the unjust death of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and so many others, these conversations interrogate the racism endemic to police power, the state, and criminal justice system that sanctify white police officers with impunity while affirming the disposability of Black lives. How might we as scholar-teachers extend, engage, and complicate these viral discussions of #BlackLivesMatter? What pedagogical strategies and resources might we collectively share with our students to analyze and challenge the myriad structures of anti-Black racism?”

We will begin the event by breaking into smaller groups and contributing to a collaborative syllabus. Please feel free to add to it beforehand, or if you can’t be at the event, join us on the Google Doc around 10:00 am next Friday.

Please spread the word!
