With a focus on pedagogy and a workshop approach, this seminar offers interrelated presentations on what can arise when grappling first-hand with interdisciplinary themes and intersectional turns in university teaching. First, I will discuss important dissonances that emerged in my experiences of teaching ‘population’ at the postgraduate level, and how this provoked a range of student responses based on disciplinary considerations. Second, I will explore how building an undergraduate module encountered calls to prioritise new spaces for radical, cutting-edge, and intersectional frames – particularly if we seek more than a buzzword status for transformation and equity. Opportunities for audience input and dialogue will be built in across the seminar.
