EDUC 315 - Pedagogies and Publics

Explores how social contexts influence informal pedagogical practices that advance societal, communal, and institutional structures. Through reading texts, primary sources, and watching films students will encounter pedagogy and educative practices not only in the classroom, the school, and educational theory but also through the study of public intellectuals, popular culture, and in grassroots activism and social movements. Centering educative and pedagogical practices that advance either dominant structures or democratic reconfigurations, students explore questions about educational access and equity by examining the intersections of gender, sexuality; race and racialized-gender; class; (im)migration and labor; humanitarianism, and legalities; ableism, disability, and the body; and society. This includes discussions of the ethical dimensions of education, the ways in which education is implicated in the formation of individual and social identities, and the role of teachers in the formation of personal and social identity. Throughout the semester, students delve into analyses of education, power, and hegemony culminating in substantive student-designed critical pedagogy research papers and projects.
